Viv ...

This was Viv a year ago.
Last night we went for a meal with her and her husband.
An hour after we left she had a seizure and died.
She had motor neurone disease.
She dealt with it with such fortitude that put us all to shame.
She never complained.
She was always laughing and happy and putting us and her friends in our place.
Her husband looked after her and cared for her selflessly and alone.
Neither of them wished to have any other help unless absolutely necessary.
She will be sorely missed by us all.

So sad. After reading your comment on my Blog just now I had to pop by and say how very sorry I was to hear about the loss of your lovely friend.

How nice that her last hours were spent with her husband and with her dear friends.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
