Time to say goodbye

How do you say "Goodbye" to a friend How do you realise her life had to end What a huge gap you leave which will never be filled Remembering your smile your manner so mild I will remember you with fond memories, Castle wont be the same Remembering our bingo jaunts a fortune to attain The curb you put on my spending Whilst waiting  for bingo to begin * "Now Seren"'  you would say just £5 each to start We wont bother with this and  that   I used to laugh saying ok  sneaking another in when she looked away The time i won seven hundred pounds was so funny you see I just calmly pressed the claim button, she yelled like a banshee Thinking it was maybe a hundred wasnt that impressed Til i saw it was much more than i had ever guessed Your with your folks now Betti you have missed them so, We will all get through this with  you watching us, I know. Hwyl fawr Betti oeddech yn ffrind da, bydd yn methu  ti goodbye Betti you were a good friend, will miss you so. *. Can play slot boards at Castle Bingo Hall whilst waiting for session to start. Costs 50p -£1 a game. Betti was same age as me, diagnosed, tumour on lung 10days before she died, Left it too late to get help.   Funeral today at 12.30

Some goodbyes are harder than others, and unfortunately you've said some of the hardest. I really don't know what to say except that I'm still here as a friend whenever you need it. The poem is nice, but as always I hate to say that knowing the subject matter.
