Dear Brittany,

One year on and I still don't believe it.

I think about you almost every day. You're still on my phone and my facebook profile picture though, so I can't forget. Though I'm friends with Ellen on Facebook now, I wanted to make sure I heard when Ruby was born. Ellen still talks about you all the time, so all the while she's popping up on my news feed I don't have to worry about remembering you :-D

From what I gather she's doing alright. Ruby is growing fast but Ellen is a proud mummy and is happily engaged now to Ben. Despite her age, she seems to be coping well. I'm sure you've got a hand in that. I didn't friend Alex on Facebook, he might have found that weird. He pops up in her statuses on occasion too though so I'm still kept a little in the loop.

And of course, your facebook page is still flooded almost daily with love from your other friends. There all lit candles for you, Nick and Matt on Friday. You won't be forgotten in a hurry.

As far as family goes, Tara posts about you a lot too, she keeps finding new photos I haven't seen yet. I don't think I'll get tired of seeing your pretty face.
Not sure what the family did today, I'm not home for Easter so I'm a little out of the loop. To be honest, I try not to think about Greg. Instead, I remind myself that Karen is taking care of you and you're catching up on all the mother-daughter things you missed out on. I hope you're getting to enjoy future things as well, it seems better that way.

More than anything, I just wanted to let you know that I miss you, I love you and I always will.

  3. What a beautiful post, and a lovely tribute.

    They say things get easier, but the pain never goes away, does it? As long as you remember, she'll always be alive in your heart and the hearts of those who love her. It's so cliche, yet so true!

    Thinking of you xx

  4. What a lovely post for her - I remember reading about it when it happened, it was so sad. I'm so sorry for your loss.

    Hope you're okay xx

  5. I also remember reading what happened, the pain never goes away but there is always a special place in our hearts! She has a beautiful smile xx

  6. I also got shivers reading this post. This is such a beautiful way to remember her. I am so sorry for you loss xx

  7. Thank you all for your comments, I really appreciate them and knowing that some of you heard about the accident. It makes me feel a little better knowing that her death was noticed.

    Writing the post (which I did before the weekend and scheduled for exactly 1 year) really helped as well. Sometime you just have to write something down.

    Thanks for listening :-) x

  8. Oh god I remember this,it was beyond horrific. Horrible way to lose innocent people. So sorry that you lost your friend.
