“She was a great sight, with a smile that reached the front, a laugh that was good to hear, a sweet voice and so beautiful.
“I always praised you, because I always knew how great you were and not for nothing I always compared you to the sun.
“And now you leave the scene, without goodbyes on a sunny day as beautiful as you.
