JUST ONE LIFE
by DAD IAN
As we again approach that dreaded time we all, who knew and loved our beautifull daughter Cheryl will remember always. Late on the Saturday around 5 pm just back from some early xmas shopping Alistair and our beautifull girl dropped by her hubby Alistair's Mum and Dad's house. After going to the toilet Cheryl was some time and when called never replied. The door was forced open and Cheryl was lying on the floor her heart had stopped. Later on her way to hospital her heart stopped twice more. Taken into Wishaw General Hospital Cheryl never regained conciousness,Alistair was there every moment sitting with Cheryl night and day her best friend to the last. On Monday 20th October at 3.15pm on a cold and wet afternoon. Our precious girl, wife, and loving Daughter closed her eyes forever and drifted away. Looking back how excited we were as her eyes opened for just a second we thought our prayers had been answered, it was not too be those lovely eyes did not see us there her life was over.
None of us ever really realise how each normal day may someday be such a precious time. We, Mum and Dad also looked on life this way but that is how life happens I suppose. Only with such tragic outcomes do we see how much of the everyday happenings we took for granted. Who knows how any day might end, looking back on our devastating circumstance may show how we all need to treat every day so differently. Life is so fragile. As loved ones go about their daily lives do we ever stop and say all we might later wish we had said. How would you know it may be the last chance you may have. Who knows what tomorrow may bring. Just a thought for us all. God in heaven is so lucky to have this precious girl in his care.Now approaching the 4 years without our wee lass our hearts break like it was still back in the hospital that terrible day..
Back when our girl was 19 she had an Anurism and after losing all her rigth side function she finally made a remarkable recovery our prayers had been answered back then ,the bad days were gone..Then later in her thirties she was taken so suddenly.After her bravery over her first stroke she truly deserved a bit more of life
