Our friend Debbie died at the weekend. Her car left the road and hit a tree midday Saturday. The weather was awful and I can imagine losing control on that road and in those conditions. Debbie was a good friend that we shared many of the ups and downs of the last few years, ours and hers. Ann and Debbie would have lunch together and we really loved and cared for her. She has a young daughter, who was at least away with her Dad when this happened, and a partner who is undergoing radiotherapy for brain tumour.
We can’t really comprehend that we won’t be seeing her Monday: we know how many times worse it has to be for her daughter, mother, partner and all who knew her.
Death, it seems, encroaches.. we have to deal with it each in our own way.. but hopefully not alone.
