Me on Monday *a sad post*

Hello everyone, I hope you've had an awesome past few weeks? "Welcome" if you're here from Sian's page. I've kind of been out of the loop a lil while. On the 2nd of October a very close family friend passed away...
This was the last group photo of us all together just a week before she died, we're aren't great fans of taking lots of face facing photos but honestly, since scrapbooking I have realised how important photo taking and making memories really is! Paris has been battling cancer for just over 18 months, a horrible disease which she has been so brave and courageous fighting!
Myself and Tracy tried to help her through the rubbish times by taking Paris places, making 'fun' and generally being there for her! Lolly & Cal think the world of her too, Lolly spending time having 'horror movie days'....I hate watching horrors! Cal always brought a smile with his witty comments and chocolate sharing! We've eaten so much food with her ..... during those steroid days...haha! We have some amazing memories! Watching her die was the most horrendous heart breaking moment we've been through in such a long time, so sad, words cannot describe that feeling but we promised to ALWAYS be there and we were! At only 21 years old I cannot even begin to imagine how her family feel.... but as ever, I will always be there!
The past few weeks have been very gloomy and we've used every excuse possible to smile!
Including randomly blowing bubbles....shopping sprees,
Lauren met up with Union J ..... again! {thankfully she didn't faint!} haha!
I packed my bright Disney Princess back pack to remind me of the good times... uni was somewhere I haven't been very regularly in the past few weeks... grief is an odd thing! Popping up when you least expect it, slapping you in the face! One thing this has shown us as a family, is the awesome people we are surrounded by. They may not be blood but they are our family and we love them so very much! THANK YOU! {You know who you are!}
Lolly & Cal looked gorgeous at the funeral! We all wore pink, Paris's favourite colour, she had a beautiful send off! Now she's shining bright up there, like the diamond she was!
Forever in our hearts xx
