Today I have been to the funeral of a good friend, whom I will miss so much. Chris had fought bravely against cancer for the last 18 months and a few days ago she lost that fight; she was frequently in pain and constantly ill from the treatments as much as the cancer itself but she had dignity, a sense of perspective and was always positive. I will miss her kindess, her friendly face and her sense of humour, but I know she would believe she had had enough and it was time to go. It is true that someone who is remembered is never gone, and I know I will remember her bravery always.
