  1. Last time I saw milivoy he didn’t look in a good way I bumped into him in a bar he was on his own another time I saw him he was drunk he didn’t look like how I knew him. He had bad teeth wearing sandals with overgrown toenails not how I knew him. That was maybe 10 years ago. Three years ago my mum died and I saw him in Wallington I was too down to say hello. One year later I googled his name and found he had died before my mum. I must have seen his spirit. He was just walking toward me with a little smile bit I was so down trodden devastated with my mum passing. I knew milivoy and his sense of humour and kind heart. He was my best friend and love in that time. God bless you. As soon as you came for an interview in Holland and Barrett I hoped you’d get the job and I thought he looks interesting lol you got the job and we met for a reason xx
