"To my great friends, thank you for the fun times, for the laughing, dancing and giggles.
"I've been so blessed by the friends I have had. You are a very special bunch and I need you to know that what has happened is no reflection on how you were as my friends.
"No call could've changed this. No chats over wine. Sadly, this is just my fate. I know it is selfish and cowardly but for me it is my only option.
"I can't face this world any longer. I'm just not strong enough. Too much has happened.
"One last request for you all – please be there for Mum, Jessie, Nick and Fozzy. They need you more now than ever. Tell them stories of our time together. Make them laugh and please let my memory be one of happiness and laughter.
"Do not remember me for the sadness and the way things ended. Think of the good times. I know I will.
"Please continue to be the close-knit gang that you are. I pray each and every one of you have a happy life. I'm glad I got to share some great days with you all. Friends forever, Lucy."
