Vicky Pattison has been paying tribute to her best friend Paul Burns on social media, following his sudden death over the weekend.
The 37 year old nightclub and events manager died unexpectedly - a vigil has been organised by friends and family for this Thursday. Vicky took to her Instagram yesterday to say she was 'heartbroken' over the news.
Grief is like an ocean, it comes in waves, ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm and sometimes it is overwhelming. All we can do is learn to swim. That’s how I feel now- overwhelmed and like I’m drowning in my own pain and grief. I’m not ready to accept the fact that we won’t laugh together again. I am not ready to believe you’re gone. The injustice of all of this is too much to bear and there’s nothing I wouldn’t give to be able to hear your voice again. We may have loved you Paul, but God loved you a lot more. I will think of you everyday my friend 💙
I don’t know what to post. I don’t know what to say. But this seemed fitting. @mrpaulburns1 you are my best friend, my oldest friend and one of the most amazing people in the world. My heart is broken. I know I will never get over losing you and this still doesn’t feel real- I’m desperately just waiting for the moment I wake up from this nightmare. The only solace I can take from this is that I spent your lastnight with you and all of our best friends and you knew how much we loved you. How important you were to us and how you kept us together as a group. I never met a more selfless person. Some of the best moments of my life I shared with you and the lasses. I do not want to accept that you won’t be at my wedding. The world will forever be less bright without you in it. But I suppose you were just too special. You were too good for us Paul and I hope they look after you in heaven. Show them how it’s done boot off burns.
