Thinking about getting ready for a sports dinner for tonight, getting our glad rags on, long dresses, black tie the works.
Feeling excited, spending time with my family and friends, but there is a serious note behind all the joy and laughter.
Just 18 months ago, a friend, a very inspirational, beautiful young man the same age as my son lost his battle with a brain tumour, that he’d been fighting for near on five years.
His strength, his determination was unbelievable, he taught everyone who knew him many lessons…..
He was just 16 years of age but what he achieved in that time was unquestionable…
His parents are the most wonderful people I have ever had the pleasure to know, I’m proud and honoured to be their friends.
They have shown only courage in the face of such adversity.
Tonight is a fund raising event for the Sam white legacy and memorial

His parents have continued with fund raising without question and are helping with research and financially supporting other young people and their families………
This song is a tribute to Sam he will be in my heart forever and tonight when I’m laughing, dancing, drinking he’ll be never far from all our thoughts.

He had a smile of gold, he is a legend in our town here in the UK….
So please let’s help other young people to fight teenage cancers, let’s support his legacy because that was his wish for fundraising to carry-on…..
Thanks to everyone for reading this post.
I dedicate it to the memory of ~
‘Sam white’ 1 /11/96 to 3/9/13
