So today we say goodbye to Jacqui.
Jacqui who I met in 1981 at a party along with someone I knew from scouts. Little did I know then they were to become mine and Lindas best friends.
Jacqui, whom we were with when she found her wedding dress.
Jacqui, whose mum made my snooker table birthday cake for my 30th birthday.
Jacqui who was my confidante, and I hers, during our late 30s and early 40s.
Jacqui whom we went to hospital with the day she found out she had a brain tumour.
Jacqui who went through the operation but was never quite the same.
Jacqui whom we saw less of because Linda's lifestyle change meant we didn't really see them anymore.
Jacqui, who in the last two years became iller.
Jacqui, who 2 weeks ago finally succombed to her illness and has gone to be with her dad.
Bye Jacqui. Love you.
