Fourteen years ago, I met someone who showed me so many valuable lessons in life. She was the most giving, warm, honest and free spirited person that I have ever met. Never pretentious, always ready to lend both hands to whomever needed her and never expecting any reward for her sincerity. She was a good friend to so many people. She was the only true friend I have ever known.

In 2006 she passed on at the age of 30, after what seemed like a long and painful battle with cancer. That day I felt a very large part of my soul ripped away from me and the hollowness has lingered on for so many years, leaving an empty spot that will always remain within.

Farewell Andia my dearest friend, you will forever stay in my heart...

A blow of wind danced across the sea
Touching each wave with her cool breeze
The free spirit that travelled far
Flying high beyond the sky

She sang with the birds in beautiful melodies
Taking away all sorrow and grief
A tender touch that lingered in the air
Embracing the soul in warm loving care

The blow of wind danced into the night
Answering to the voice that came from the light
She whispered a song in peaceful bliss
Wiping all tears with her gentle kiss
