He is a great guy
He is always there to listen to me
He is always available when I have a problem
He is special
He is funny
He is kind hearted, warm and sincere
He is a good friend
He is helpful, considerate and offers advice
and as the curtain closes and the funeral service comes to an end…..
I wish I had done more for him
I wish I had reached out to him
I wish I could have been there for him when he needed me
I wish I hadn’t ignored him
I wish I had spoken to him more often
I wish I hadn’t dismissed him as “needy”
I wish I had listened to him
I wish I made time to see him
I wish he was still here
Don’t be that person who only realises when it’s too late!
no one in this day and age of technology can really say that they don’t have 2 minutes to send a quick text message, a quick email or private message via social media. Dare I even mention picking up the phone and calling someone…
That one single gesture can make so much difference to someone, especially someone who is always the first to reach out to others.
Be a friend to someone when they need you, not just when you need them.
Loneliness can set someone back months very very quickly, don’t assume that someone is fine because they say that is the case, I’m not just talking about people with mental health illnesses, consider the elderly relative as well.
You will be surprised at what happens when you make a little bit of effort with someone, especially if one day you find yourself in their shoes..
