Like so many, I am saddened to learn that our friend and WP colleague has passed away.
Though we all knew it was inevitable, it still comes as a heavy blow.
We never met, other than the comments sections on our blogs and later personal emails.
Sue had a way of transporting you with her words to places beyond the photographs and what was immediately before you. Her love of nature and observations was something we shared, as was our love of dogs. Ani reminds me so much of Maggie, and Sue did a wonderful piece including her at Christmas in Ani’s Dear Santa posts. Now Ani and Stuart will be a comfort to each other.
Sue was someone who inspired you, brought out the best in you and everyone in so many ways with her writings. Even during these past few months, her spirit, compassion and courage shone through, sharing her thoughts and always an encouragement to others.
Her loss cannot be quantified, and I shall miss her deeply.
On Monday, I wrote this for a photo challenge.
Sue was on my mind, in my uppermost thoughts, and it is for her.
The night has a new light, long may it shine.
You’re there now,
The brightest star,
Dazzling almost blinding,
I know it’s you.
Your energy will never fade,
It just has a new dimension
You have become
The beauty of the night,
A beacon to all,
Showing the way
For all of us,
As you continue to shine.
