At 3pm today, as we are driving up to Newcastle ,I shall be thinking of my friend Marion as sadly ( a stupid word – I mean something much stronger than that ) it is the time of her funeral . She is a lovely , kind , funny , articulate caring person . We were in our Monday night book club , and she’d always read the book ( unlike the rest of us – some of whom hadn’t even bought it ! ). We bonded the first time we met , as we made each other laugh , and we both loved the book ‘Music and Silence’ by Rose Tremaine.
Today I send lots of love and strength to her family.
