................A Tribute to Angie (Ang65)................
This tribute for me is so hard to write,
For the loss of a lovely friend on this site.
News that none of us wants to hear,
Angie loved life this is so very clear.
Blessed with support from her husband Andy,
He must have been a great comfort to Angie.
Theirs was a marriage that was meant to last,
But sadly the time went all too fast.
From the time of her diagnosis,
Facing a very poor prognosis.
Both decided to make the most of their life,
An inspiration for any husband and wife.
Aware of the fact that they had each other,
They made the best of their time together.
Lasting memories that cancer hasn't took,
A true love story often found in a book.
I have had the privilege of meeting her too,
And what Andy has written is so very true.
An inspiration to everyone she met,
Anyone would find her hard to forget.
She wasn't one to dwell on the cancer,
But instead provide her very own answer.
No wallowing in self pity, no battle to win,
Made every moment count, with a LIFE to begin.
Angie was the same to us online,
Didn't mention herself - there wasn't time.
Instead she chose to offer her care,
And even though quiet was always there.
Sometimes she came on in others defence,
So she really wasn't one to sit on the fence.
A person that stood up for what she felt was right,
Surely this is a quality we would all like.
Andy we know was her mighty rock,
They fitted together like a shoe and sock.
We hope you will cherish the short time you had,
Look back on the good times and be glad.
Loving each other in a unique way,
Cancer never took that - t's true to say.
They loved each other till "death us do part"
This is a legacy that comes straight from the heart.
