    I can't believe it's 3 years this year since one of my good friends sadly lost her battle to heart failiure.

    She was a wonderful person, one of the true stars in this world. She never once complained about her condition and was always there to help when you needed it the most.

    I've known her since nursery and she was one hell of a laugh. It's so strange to think that she's not with us anymore.

    RIP Claire, God I don't half miss you x

    It was so sad :( after we left school nearly everyone went their seperate ways...no-one knew about facebook at that point so we had to find out by word of mouth.

    It was horrible when we all found out. I missed her funeral as I was ill at the time but I went up to her grave afterwards.

    I'm not sure what I was expecting but it definitely wasn't a mound of earth. It was so final, so impersonal for a girl who truly lived life to the fullest :(

    Time goes by so quickly, keeping her memory alive is the nicest thing you can do.

    I know through personal experience time doesn't heal, just gives you the ability to cope better with it.

    If you ever need to talk just pm me

    Thanks, I'm ok :)

    I've come to terms with her death now but it's like when MJ or Princess Diana died...You just can't believe they're not here.

    Reminds me of these tragic deaths not so long ago which happened at Kielder. Victoria attending the school where I'm just starting and everybody there knew her, and she was expected to go to Oxford or Cambridge. Also, the village where she lived (Kirkwhelpington) is such a close knit community that it devastated them too. The high school closed on the day of the funeral as many teachers and students wanted to attend the funeral. It was shocking...:(

    Community turns out to honour tragic Kirkwhelpington father and daughter - Northumberland communities - Bellingham
