Ive had the most terrible week this week, firstly the computer stopped working, so i called the repairman but he said he could be up to 3 hours so i thought id give it ago my self, OK people don't try this at home, i went and electrocuted myself, what a silly billy i am, so i decided i would just wait for the repairmen instead, and i thought it would be best if i went to had a shower, i was all dirty from the electric shock.

So i was just pottering around the house for the next few hours when there was a knock at the door, it was the repairman, at last! I offered him a cup of tea and was on my way to make it when there was a another knock at the door. who could it be i wondered? It was Bertha so i invited her in and offered her some tea and cake. She headed for the living room and i went to the kitchen.

I was just in the kitchen finishing of the tea and cakes when i heard a almighty scream from the repairman, oh dear had he gone and electrocuted himself as well. So i ran in to the living room to see what was going on...

...there i found the grim reaper with the ghost of Bertha. I couldn't belive it, i still cant believe it,  my best friend is gone!! I was in such shock, i just didn't understand it, she had just popped round to see me, and id gone into the kitchen and then shes dead. She  wasn't even that old. she was only two years older than me. I wasn't, I'm not, ready for my best friend to leave me, how can i live without her. When her body was take to the hospital, it turned out she had a weak heart and it just happened to give way at that moment.

The Funeral was held later that week at Riverview's cemetery. It was a lovely service with a fairly good turnout, Bertha's family came back over form the other side of the world, they had only left a few weeks ago - im just happy she got to see them before she died. A lot of people said some very kind words about Bertha, she was someone loved by so many. I just still cant believe she has really gone.

The wake was held at my house and everyone brought a bit of food, most of the neighborhood came round, and we talked about Bertha, and how wonderful she had been. So many people were also so shocked about Bertha's sudden death. The wake was lovely though, people shared so may lovely memories of Bertha, she lived a good life.

I must have cried so much that night, with almost every person in Riverview and on my own, i'm sorry if i keep going on about how sad this is but i really am terribly upset. That night i sat and warmed myself in front of the fire, it was mine and Bertha's favorite room in the house, we loved the wallpaper and the fact there was no TV just the fire and a bookshelf. We would often sit in there and read and talk.

I fell asleep on the sofa in front of the fire that night, just so upset that my best friend was gone forever.

Gameplay Notes

+ Bertha's death was a big shock to me, i had made Betcy and Bertha at the same time and the separated them so they live in different houses, and Betcy hasn't even past 80 days (she on like 78/9 or something) So when i invited Bertha round for the day i honestly didn't expect her to die - but Sims always surprises me, i guess that's some of the fun of it. 
+ Betcy really did cry on almost everyone in the neighborhoods shoulders. Every time she met someone she would start chatting and next thing i know shes crying. Bless her she really is quite upset about the whole thing.

Oh my, that's so sad! :-( I think I might have teared up a bit. Poor Betcy! You did a lovely job of capturing her grief. And I agree that this game is the most fun when it surprises you, even when it's something unfortunate like a death!

I know! I really felt sorry for Betcy too, her best friend :( but I do love it when the game surprises me. Happier times are hopefully just around the corner for Betcy thought :)
