Had some sad news today, Mum phoned me early this morning (always a bad sign) to let me know that a friend of mine lost her husband suddenly yesterday morning. I haven't seen Doreen for some time & it has got to the 'just send cards at Christmas' stage. When something like this happens you suddenly start thinking about old times & remembering what sort of part people have played in your life. Doreen used to run the Youth Club at our Church & was a very big influence on my life during my teenage years. She always said she would never get married, then in her early 30's she started going out with & then married Bryce & had three children. Over 30 wonderful years later, yesterday morning, he died in her arms. They have always been a huge part of their local Church, always the ones who were there for people, caring for & visiting other members or any one in need. I just hope that Doreen & her family are wrapped in the comforting arms of their friends to help see them through.
Rest in Peace Bryce.
