My dear friend Carol passed away tonight. I didn’t get a chance to see her again before she died. I was suppposed to head to London from from Pickering to see her in the morning and spend as much of the weekend as I could with her. At least I got to spend some time with her last weekend when she was still at the point where she was comfortable and somewhat at ease.

Thirty years apart were too long. It is hard to believe that the photo below was taken just last summer and that someone so vibrant and beautiful, in spirit and otherwise, could die less than a year later.

I will miss her.

    I am so sorry for your loss…
    I know there’s nothing anyone can say to make you feel better at the moment but hopefully, with time, it’ll get easier and you will think back on your friendship with fond memories and a smile….
    Big Hugs to you!

    I’m so sorry about the loss of your friend.
    I just found your blog through Photo Hunt and I must say your photography is quite moving.

      Thank you so much… both for the condolence and the compliment. Both are most appreciated.

    Sorry to hear your loss. I remember it was just a few days ago, I read that you’ve met up with her after many years.

      Thank you. Yes, after 30 years. Her birthday was six days after mine (she was a year older).
