I was fortunate (if you can call it that) in that I received many cards, flowers, plants and visits but the one thing that really stands out is a rose bush called ‘Remember Me’. It’s beautiful and I got enormous pleasure and comfort when it bloomed this year. The first rose opened on the first anniversary of my husband’s death - wow! Couldn’t believe it.
Another thing I had given me was a framed Pooh Bear quote, perhaps perfect for your friend - it goes like this:
If ever there is a tomorrow when we’re not together…
There is something you must always remember.
You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think.
But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart…
I’LL ALWAYS BE WITH YOU.
You sound like a very good friend to have Vic. Much love xx
