A work colleague died of cancer today. Anita was a lovely lady who, up until she became ill, I would occasionally share a conversation if our paths crossed in the corridors of local democracy. Her mother was a good friend of my Auntie Rita’s and, when my aunt was still alive, Anita would always ask after her.
It’s also coming up to the time of year my mum died six years ago. I wrote a poem on 1st December 2007, on the first anniversary of her death. I’m not that good at poetry – but I thought I would share it with you today, in memory of Anita and thinking of the loved ones she has left behind. Just click on the link – Six Years of December.
