A year ago you were diagnosed with this disease and three months ago today you left us. The day you were diagnosed, after we had spoken to the consultant, you came back home with me. Your bag was already packed and in my car because we knew what he was going to say and you didn't want to go home to an empty house. You were so strong and calm, I was the one secretly wiping the tears and screaming inside. What a strange 90 minute drive we had, talking of holidays we'd had, family problems, the past, the future, what we would do tomorrow, have for dinner...When we arrived here you wanted to walk in the fields behind the house and that is the last photo I took of you, as you laughed and smiled despite everything. You continued to laugh and smile even when this disease robbed you of your speech and ability to walk - you still gave the "thumbs up". You never complained, you never said "why me?". You accepted the hand you had been dealt and made the very most of the time you had with grace, dignity and humour. I miss you very much and I am grateful that you were such a large part of my life, a positive influence and a huge inspiration. We speak of you often and always will, you will never be forgotten - My Aunt, my sister, my best friend. I love you. Rest a while now. Sweet dreams.
