For Libby x x x

My lovely friend,

Today you had to say goodbye to your soulmate, who died suddenly and tragically not two weeks ago. You showed such dignity, courage and eloquence, in the face of the most awful circumstances.  Your tribute was truly beautiful; through your words your love for each other filled the room, and I will never, ever forget your quiet strength as you spoke to us all about your life together.

You did something amazing today, I was so proud of you. I’m so sorry, devastated for you, that you had to do it at all. But you did it wonderfully, and I hope that the fact you were able to share such a lovely goodbye will help you in some small way.

My lovely friend Libby. I salute you. Speak soon x x x
