"She was very hard-working and always very professional. She worked six days a week."

Denise described her friend as being devoted to her husband Jonny, whom she had known from they were both 17.

Jonny had been on a waiting list for a hip replacement and got word that he was to have his surgery soon.

The last time she spoke to her friend was the Friday before she died when she rang to tell her about the surgery.

Denise added: "She was a wee bit stressed because Jonny had just got word that he was going in for his hip replacement.

"I said to her, 'at least he knows what he is getting for Christmas'.

"We were due to go out for a Christmas party two nights after the surgery and she was worried she might not make it.

"She went out that day and bought Jonny a Christmas card and sent me a picture of what she had written in it - 'You've been a very good boy this year so Santa is bringing you a new hip' but he is still keeping an eye on you.

"That was typical of her, she always enjoyed a bit of fun.

"She absolutely adored Jonny. They have been together since they were 17 and they were so happy. They had been planning a wee trip away after Christmas.

"My heart goes out to him. Lorraine and I were due to turn 50 at the same time and had already been planning how we would celebrate.

"Jonny said to me at the funeral we would have to do something to mark her 50th."

Denise was driving when she heard the tragic news on the radio that a woman had died after being knocked down in a rush hour accident while on her way to work. Like everyone else she was horrified by the news but it never crossed her mind that it was her best friend.

She added: "I just couldn't believe it and even now I still find it hard to take in.

"Lorraine was so sensible and I feel I really need to find out what happened to get closure."

Police have renewed their appeal for witnesses. PSNI Inspector David Gibson urged anyone with information to contact the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference 198 21/11/17.
