Marc and Rosie

YesterdayI was given a card ,it was from Merci ,and it was the card the family gave out at Marc’s funeral .It was very simple and very beautiful – Marc’s smiling youthful face in front of a rich rainbow .I have put it in a special place , because like other friend’s children who have died ,I have deep feelings of love and protection towards them .Irrational,stupid ,I don’t know ? I just know I feel it .Marc loved football and one of his closest friends is going to the World Cup .He is going to leave his card in the stadium .I think that is lovely .

Then this morning ,listening to a programme about Maya Angelou ,I heard this quote of hers ‘Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud’ and I thought ..that is for Marc . Her next quote was ‘I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels.Life’s a bitch .You’ve got to go out and kick ass’ …and that is for Rosie.
