I will never forget Diana - ever!

Princess Diana
I was on the way to church that morning and I was busy getting dressed. The TV was on and all I saw were these words running across the TV – death of Diana. OMG! Nobody could concentrate in the service and my mind was so busy.

How could this happen to such a wonderful carrying beautiful woman – our last hope of what was majestic and amazing!!!

I have never cried so much in my life – not even at my own parents funeral, she was the most awesome person this world have ever seen.

My obsession began at school in Standard 9. The first time I saw her on TV as Charles’s girlfriend she was so shy and always looked away from the camera’s.

So my hair was highlighted and cut like hers, my matric dress was made out of black velvet like her first dress and when she got married I sent her a wedding card.

I watched her continually as the years passed and on her death – I taped the video (still have this) of her funeral and cried the whole day - I went to the cathedral and signed the book paying my respects.

I will never forget her - ever!!!
