Missing Mary

It's the most beautiful sunny morning here in Derbyshire. I'm sitting in bed looking at the sun on the lime trees and missing Mary, my best friend, my Anam Cara, who died two and a half years ago. The feeling swept in last night and is still here this morning.

I have been thinking of you ever since you posted. Couldnt think of anything to say that was less than trite.

We recently lost a friend called Anita. It was her funeral last Thursday. My husband has commented that he finds it difficult that life just goes on - as the world should stop and notice the lack of her life. I agree with him - we do need to stop often and remember all a person meant to us and acknowledge the loss of them - and I dont think that ever stops.
