Ivana, drugarica iz gimnazije

Na dan kad se rodila, 19. jula, praznik je svetitelja koji je rekao da je veličina čoveka u zahvalnosti za ono što ima i divljenju prema vrlinama i uspesima drugih ljudi. Takva je bila Svetlana-Ceca Tošić – Lana Hopkins. Uspešna, a skromna, s poštovanjem prema drugima, čudesna, neuporediva, nestvarna. Posebna i nesebična. Naša prelepa Lana… Volela sam je i osećala njenu ljubav. Dopisivale smo se, podržavale i hrabrile, radovale, bile ponosne jedna na drugu. Naše letnje veče ’22. bilo je praznik iskrenosti, smeha i nade. Stalno mislim o tebi, Ceco, lepoto. A ti živiš kroz svoju zlatnu devojčicu Angelinu. …

Voljena moja drugarice Ceco❤️ Zajedno smo odrasle, igrale se kao deca i već tada sam te zavolela kao sestru, bile smo nerazdvojne, delile srećne trenutke našeg detinjstva. Kasnije smo zajedno upisale matematiku gimnaziju u Bajinoj Bašti, sedele u klupi, ti si bila najbolji djak, naš ponos, bila si moj uzor kako treba biti najbolji. Svi smo te voleli školski drugovi, profesori, komšije. I u Engleskoj si bila najbolja u svom poslu na ultrazvuku, imala talenat, znanje, sposobnost i veštine i pameti za dijagnostiku koju si samo ti mogla pružiti pacijentima. Srbija i Engleska su izgubile najboljeg na ultrazvuku. Volela si svoj posao i bila maksimalno posvećena medicini, spašavala si mnoge živote, ponosna sam na tebe i zahvalna za sve,  za svaku tvoju toplu reč, za tvoj prelepi osmeh, tvoju hrabrost, tvoj optimizam, uvek si umela da pronadješ najbolje rešenje za sve,  hvala ti za svaki tvoj poklon koji si donosila iz Engleske, mislila si na sve nas i pomagala nam, familiji, komšijama, prijateljima, najlepše Novogodišnje čestitke sam od tebe dobijala iz Engleske. Zahvalna sam Bogu što imamo predivnu Andjelinu od tebe, dete koje si ti vaspitala tako dobra i mila kao što si ti bila. Andjelini šaljem svu  ljubav❤️ …

Dear Lana,  I only knew you for a short time, meeting through our daughter’s friendship. The first time we met, you told me how you’d fought and beaten breast cancer. I was in awe of you… your strength and positivity. You were always welcoming, generous and smiling. Both Hannah and I send our love to you, to Angelina and to family and friends. 🌸💕 xxxx Wendy  …

Dear Lana, A bright ray of light, I will miss your sassyness. I will miss your naughtyness. Your strength was amazing and advice was always the very best.

My dearest Lana.   I remember fondly our work time together and always looked forward to catching up after we were no longer in each others lives each day.  You were a wonderful work wife, a gifted Sonographer who gave so much to your patients and very respectful to your colleagues.  At one point we were inseparable, even at lunch where we regularly indulged with a curry at a local haunt in Whitechapel.  You were always a joy to around, giving energy to only that which was important.  The world is a poorer place without you.  Writing this has been extra difficult as my life too has been altered by cancer, I lost my beautiful husband last year to this disease.  I understand how much you must have fought to be there for Angelina, just as my own Kevin did for me.  There are so many things in life that are unfair and unjust to those among us that are truly deserving of the best parts of  life.  Your beautiful smile and infectious positive energy will always be remembered and cherished. Heavenly kisses and hugs your way xoxo David …
