In memory of June
I lost my dear friend this week. People die, it's part of life. But it's at the oddest moments when I miss her most. It's when I sit down after doing the guests breakfast's and switch on skype, there's no flippant comment appears on the screen and yet I can see our whole history of everyday conversations. And then suddenly nothing. And my everyday worries seem banal, the people I worried about seem undeserving of my time. It suddenly hit me, be selective of your friends and treasure those who care for you in case one day you regret wasting your time on those who deserve nothing from you.
June and I laughed, we cried, we saw each other through the good times and the not so good times. We held each other tightly and hugged when we were happy or sad. We drank champagne on a deserted beach overlooking the Isle of Sky and we danced to loud music and watched the stars appear and twinkle in the inky blue sky. June wore outrageously short skirts and flirted for England, you couldn't fail to love her.
June lost her courageous battle to cancer. My daughter Tallulah is running this weekend to raise funds for this hideous disease. Please support her if you can by donating through this link https://www.justgiving.com/tallulahbarnett
Loyal, supportive, non judgemental friends are rare in life.
I miss June.
