'She worked tirelessly on numerous charity campaigns, creating memories for many individuals and their families.'

Just to hear the answerphone

But I'll leave a message so I'm not alone
This morning I woke up still dreaming
With memories playing through my head
You'll never know how much I miss you
The day that they took you, I wish it was me instead
But you once told me, 'Don't give up
You can do it day by day'
And diamonds, they don't turn to dust or fade away
So I will keep
I'll be living one life for the two of us
