I have been thinking about you all, really. But I haven't even had time to hop on to the computer to check out your posts, let alone comment or write a post myself.
It is due, in part, to the untimely passing of a gentle, kind lady at the age of 52. She was the Mum of a young man who works for us. But she was more than that as, through him, I feel I can count her amongst my friends and I was very fond of her.
She passed away on the 10th December and since then I have been helping to work his shifts to allow him some time to begin to get his head round this and make the inevitable arrangements.
Today I went with him to see her, resplendent in her wicker basket. We celebrate her life on Monday with a send off true to her, featuring, not flowers, but balloons.... and the dress code? PINK!
And so to her I dedicate this post and this picture....
....with love, Angela.
