Louise and Roger’s Christmas card was the first to arrive last year (as usual!) and the first one I happened to take down on twelfth night. Looking at her beautiful flowing handwriting knocked me back and really made it hit home that this is the last time we’ll see it.
It still seems unbelievable that such a positive, vibrant force of nature is gone from this world. At least Rob and I have such amazing memories to cherish, not only from Pebble Mill but afterwards in more recent times with her sitting in our garden on a summer day over a glass of wine (or 2!), reminiscing with some tall tales. That laugh – which could curl your hair – ringing out.
We have no words for you Roger, Heather and Mark, to say how we feel, and we cannot begin to appreciate how you must feel. Hopefully in time you will begin to remember more of the happy times we were all privileged to spend with this wonderful, warm, friend, mentor and amazing human being. Sending love to you all. Travel well Louise.
Lynne and Rob Taylerson xx
