“Last year I was in a very different place, but after your support, today I'm in a much better place.
It's extremely hard when you're in a such a dark place, to see that see light at the end of the tunnel, or that one day you're going to be okay.
I will admit that back then I really didn't.
You didn't wave a magic wand nor give me any medicine to make it not happen.
You were just there.
You listened, you talked, you helped and you made a difference to my life.
I will never forget you both, and for what, what you did in my darkest saddest days”
