She was always smiling unstintingly. She had a special way to touch people’s hearts. Parting from such an amazing person came so suddenly. I was informed of her passing in summer, 2 years ago. When I met her for the first time, we instantly clicked. She began brightening my life since then.
She introduced me to many Vegetarian dishes using ‘Quorn’ products which influenced me to become a ‘Vegetarian’ for a while. I used to visit her flat filled with colourful interior decors and abstract paintings (and Buddha statues) in cosy spaces. I particularly liked her own design on her bathroom walls where I often spent extra minutes admiring. She always used big bold fonts to write something as if those letters emitted her energy and zeal for life. ‘Happy Chrimbo’ cards from her are safely tucked away.
The day we all said our last farewell, she was inside the huge wicker basket decorated with countless bright yellow sunflowers all around it just like a scene from ‘Il girasole’. Her favourite music was playing. No one could hold tears, yet we truly wanted to celebrate her lofty life. And I tried my hardest to stay cheerful too. Thank you my dearest friend. You know what? I now moved and reside in your hometown. I live very close from your mum and your son and your old flat. I walk around, you are everywhere. And I dedicate my version of happy you as ‘COME UN SOLE’.
