In August 2018 one of my best friends passed away. She had been very poorly all year and my mum had to tell me it was cancer which is really scary. She couldn’t come to school and had lots of treatment in hospital. I thought she was so brave so I started fundraising for the ward that was looking after her.
I would like to talk about Sam.
Sam was in my school year. She joined my school in Year 3 and we were friends from the first day. She loved music and cake just like me. She was kind and funny, and seemed to be happy spending time with me. I remember her smiling and her text messages. Neither of us liked school much so we looked after each other. My 9th birthday party with Sam and her sister Sophie, who is another one of my best friends, was one of the best days ever. We had a pamper party, then we ate cake and laughed a lot.
Sam was very creative . She made lots of things for me including the HHH logo in aquabeads. I use a picture of it on my Facebook page.
In July my mum told me that Sam had become more poorly so I wrote her a letter telling her how much I missed her and loved her. I know Sam’s mum read it to her which is comforting because not long after my mum told me that Sam had died. I think it is the saddest thing that has ever happened to me.
Sam has a bench at our old school which I like to visit, as I miss my friend everyday. Sam was funny, pretty and caring and I love her.
