The Brightest Star In The Sky

On the 26th of October, we all lost someone very important to us. Someone who was loving, friendly, passionate, enthusiastic and so much more. Someone who will be in our hearts forever.

Alison Watt was the nicest girl I knew. She always had a smile on her face, and she never complained about anything, ever. She tried her best at everything she did, and never gave up. She gave everything a try, and always accepted everyone.
Alison was well known for her golfing skills. She won many trophies, tournaments and championships for it. She loved blue butterflies and blue roses (although I don't think they exist). But I'm sure the greatest love she had was for people, for her family and friends.

Beaver, which was her nickname, had a sleepover with a few close friends to celebrate her 14th birthday. Before she went to sleep, she thanked her parents, and kissed them goodnight. In the morning, she never woke up.

Her funeral was one of the saddest days of my life, definitely. I walked into the church with my school uniform on, and sat by my best friend and my dad. I really didn't think I'd cry, but I did. From the time they played A Little Ray of Sunshine to the time that I walked out of the church doors. And what's worse, I didn't even have a tissue with me, so I had to wipe my snotty nose all over my uniform. It hurt to see so many people upset, but it hurt even more to know that she was gone forever.

When I first found out, I was in shock and disbelief. I still am. Out of everything that could ever possibly happen, having a friend pass away was the last thing I would have expected. People often to say to live every day like it were your last, and to never take things for granted. I can truely say that I now understand.

My school has planted a tree in honour of Alison, and has also raised lots of money so the local hospital can get a piece of medical equipment that can save many lives in the future, as she suffered from a heart problem.

I really wish I got to know her better, but I know for sure that she was a strong and intelligent girl who had so much ahead of her. It's ashame that her life had to end so early. If it didn't, I know she'd take full advantage of all the capabilities she had, and that she'd be successful in the future. I'm never going to meet anyone like her again, she was one of a kind. Now she's the brightest star in the sky.

Rest In Peace Alison
21st October 1994 - 26th October 2008

You may be gone, but I'll never forget you, ever.
