The death of an old friend

Received a message today from England to inform me about the death of a woman whom I have known since we were 5 years old and went to school together. She was a very important part of my childhood and early years. Although it was not unexpected, due to the advances of cancer, it still hurts when someone from your life dies at an early age. Gillian Travis was one of those people who always enjoyed a good laugh about everything and her network of old friends will always remember her as a very happy person. Sad that cancer always seems to take these kind of people early.
It made me stop work early today to go and think about the really important things in life.
