I first met Katie at Sutton High School. We became good friends in sixth form and by the time we left school we had grown very close.
As with many a great friendship, as we got older, Katie and I shared both good times and bad. But most of all I remember how much fun we had together and how caring she was when I needed support.
I was so proud that she chose me to be her bridesmaid and part of the happiest day of her life.
I work at the heart of the NHS as a partner of a Lincolnshire GP practice. My job gives me a valuable opportunity to inform people about Carbon Monoxide Awareness.
