    Another day gone one that I shall remember as the day that my dear friend John Smith was cremated at Bannockburn in Scotland. We shared a lot of valuable time together, we played football for our school Sunnyside when we were 11 years old, we used to play all day football matches in the park, only stopping when we could not see the ball any longer. We met when we were 5 or 6 years old at Sunnyside School, which was the best school in the world. We spent many hours in each other’s parents houses, talking long into the night, mostly about girls, we would have been around 14 then, we both loved girls, and we both had lots of girlfriends, we even dated two sets of girls who themselves were best friends. We went to the pub and drank pints of lager when we were far to young to be there we both loved jokes and often we would laugh until the tears were rolling down our faces. At New Year John was our first foot for many years, my mother loved John she always thought that he was tall dark and handsome, which he was, and being our first foot would bring us good luck, which he did, he even turned up each year with a piece of coal, we would then the two of us go first footing together, bottle in pocket and winkle pickers shining. We went to night clubs and dance halls together. Truly we were like brothers. We did have a couple of fights, what’s a black eye between friends. I will miss him, his bright personality and his great sense of humor his company and his loyalty as a friend. For me John made the world a better place. RIP old friend.
