I lose someone who quickly become important to me today. I knew her only short time, and she was someone with so little to give, and gave it completely. She is someone who touched my heart, my soul, so strongly in such a short time. Her smile, with her own suffering least of her mind, was beautiful, and so was she. I never would think that I could feel so strongly of someone in such very short time. But if ever I met pureness of soul, it was in her. She was only 45 years old, and she leaves two young children without her.

Please remember to take few minutes to say 'I love you' to the people you care for in your life. It takes so little time and effort, but means the world. Without love, would we even have a world?

This is not totally appropriate, these lyrics, as they are more suited to someone who has been friend long time. I just have faith that, given the time, we would have been.

Goodbye my friend
by Karla Bonoff

Oh we never know where life will take us
We know it's just a ride on the wheel
And we never know when death will shake us
And we wonder how it will feel

So goodbye my friend
I know I'll never see you again
But the time together through all the years
Will take away these tears
It's O.K. now
Goodbye my friend

I'd see a lot of things that made me crazy
And I guess I held on to you
You could've run away and left, well maybe
But it wasn't time and we both knew

So goodbye my friend
I know I'll never see you again
But the love you gave me through all the years
Will take away my tears
I'm O.K. now
Goodbye my friend

A life so fragile, a love so pure
We can't hold on but we try
We watch how quickly it disappears
And we'll never know why

But I'm O.K. now
Goodbye my friend
You can go now
Goodbye my friend

You were special and important Becky, and you were and are loved, and will be remembered. Odykh mir, drugk. Rest in peace, friend.

Leosha
