The telling detail

This is me with my best friend Mary, sitting in her back garden 7 years ago.

Mary’s husband John took the photo.

Me and Mary 1

This is me sitting alone on her bench at the park yesterday.


the inscription reads:

             In loving memory of Mary Scurfield 1948 – 2015

cherished and forever missed by her family and many dear friends

The unfortunately placed paper cup behind my feet was my empty cuppa. I was so nervous I was going to spill the tea on the beautiful bench that I put it on the ground and forgot about it, and John had Mary on his mind, not paper cups. The telling detail.

She was such a treasure, and no-one will ever fill the gap she has left in my life.
