    In fact I am crying my eyes out.
    Some of you know I have a support site for ladies with breast cancer.

    Over the 7 years I have had it there have been lots of friendships made that have become more than cyber friendships and have evolved into to real flesh an blood ones.

    A few years ago 20 or so of us met in London. One lady came from South Africa and one from America.

    I flew into London a week before the meeting and met up with the one from America, Bobbie. We hit it off immediately and boy did we set London alight. After the 3 day meeting Bobbie flew back to Spain with me an we enjoyed a week here at our home and we thoroughly enjoyed showing her Spain.

    Bobbie is dying. She has secondary tumours all over her body including her brain. I have just spoken to her in the hospital in America and told her how much I love her. I can not believe she has so little time left.

    Her lovely husband is keeping me informed of the state of her health.

    With a site like mine I am used to members dying It is always heartbreaking but with Bobbie it is like losing a sister.

    Awww sue so sad xxx

    At least she will remember what a beautiful, fantastic friend you are and what a fantastic time you both had together.

    Hopefully the end isn't too painful for her.

    I hope you're ok.

    Lots of love xxxx

    It's so sad to lose a loved one. Her passing will be a painful one to you, but her legacy will be one more friend whose life she has touched and changed for the better.
    May she have an easy passing, full of the knowledge she is loved.
    God Bless you too Sue x

    She will be given palliative care until the end so hopefull she will not experience any pain.

    I am in bits, keep filling up thinking of her and the crazy things we did together .

    I know that in time those same memories will have me grinning.

    So sad to hear your news, love & hugs to you & all her family & friends. I'm sure she'll be at peace & pain free & in the best place. You've got all those wonderful memories and it's so good that you got to have that 'chat' with her.

    Take Care

    Love to you
