She’d been my very best friend since school. We were always there for each other through good times and bad. It was only natural that she should be my Chief Bridesmaid and Godmother to our little girl. It was a bonus that she got on so well with you too. I could not have coped if she hadn’t liked my choice of husband. She stayed single. Never found the right man. The telltale signs were there but I didn’t see them until too late. You bought her what I really wanted for Christmas. Then hand in hand you both left without a backward glance.
