    Who if you were to lose them unexpectedly, you would give anything to have them back for a wee while. You would give anything just to let them know how you feel.

    If you haven't spoken to that person for a while, then why not do it. Pop round and see your Gran for half an hour, or phone her and just say hello, how you doin'. It will only take you a couple of minutes and will make her feel great. Don't do it during her fave TV prog tho'.

    This goes for the older amongst us as well, phone your Auntie Nelly or pop in to see Uncle Wullie on the way home.

    There will come a day you will wish you were able to do it.

    That person has just turned 19, and she doesn't speak to me anymore.

    Anyway, great advice. I wish I realized this before my grandfather died - though I am spending more time with the grandparents now.

    Any particular reason for this deep insight ?

    No reason at all, it just occurred and I thought I would post it.

    It is perhaps the best piece of advice people will ever get. They just don't realise it until it is too late to take it.

    Good post JP, I've lost some friends and loved ones and I never got the chance to say goodbye, something I will carry as a weight on my shoulders for the rest of my life.

    To the chaps who have lost people and wish they had spent the time with them. Or could spend some time with them now.

    We surely learn by these mistakes and we will not let it happen again. Make the call or the flying visit to those you have left. It will make you both happy, in fact it might make others happy as well, who knows.

    In fact, why not do it as a tribute to the absent friends. It may ease some of the pain you have that you cannot tell them how you feel or spend just an extra hour with them.

    To the chaps who have not lost someone yet, learn from our mistakes not your own. One day your gran will not be here and you will wish you could just pop in on the way home. So do it while you still can, it will make her day and it only needs to be a small part of yours.
