Firstly I want to thank everyone for all the sweet messages and tweets, you guys are my rock.
I found that writing my thoughts and feelings down, helped me to cope with Amy's passing, so I shall try to keep it up. Those who have been following me for some time know that I'm not the best with writing consistently, but new beginnings as they say lol
So I went to Amy's house to pay my respects, one year ago she passed...I remember just landing in Spain for a holiday, I just arrived at my apartment and then my phone blew up. I received all these messages on my phone...I had hundreds of messages, voicemails, tweets, Facebook messages, missed calls....All saying something like "RIP Amy" or "Zalon are you ok, have you heard?"
Now we've had hoax in the past and I hoped it was just another one of those times...........I froze trying to compose myself.......so I called our manager but his phone was going to voicemail.....panicking now I struggled to think of who could confirm if this was really happening...I called the managements office and I asked if it was true...and the reply was "Zalon i'm so sorry...i'm sorry it's true"
I broke down.....how could this be....this can't be true.......I couldn't stay in the country, so I got on the next flight out of the country and went round to the family's house. Amy's mum grabbed me straight away and said "Zalon YOU ARE FAMILY" which was very heart warming that she recognized how much her daughter and I loved and looked out for each other.
So a year later I arrive at the house to be greeted by so many of the fans outside...I greet the family, band and the whole team. There were so many cards and I could feel the love from everyone around.
Next we hit Jazz after dark, love and laughter filled the air just as Amy would have wanted...food all around and an open bar........It was lovely seeing Tyler, Dionne Bromfeild, the band and the whole family again. Everyone was reliving happy memories and also informing everyone of what they'd been up to over the past 12 month.....
Reflecting, it reminded me of our journey and how many lives she touched and I feel proud to have been apart of it all.
P.s How has the last 12 months been for you ?
