Paul and I are going together.
To think it was a year ago almost to the day
that Jayne called on us to run with her art
because she wasn’t well enough to take it to market herself.
The outcome was inevitable,
and yet she, her family and we friends always hoped for a miracle.
I guess the miracle was Jayne herself.
Arty, creative, talented.
She was a smashing woman, you know.
Wicked sense of humour.
Right old gigglepot.
The funeral is to be a celebration of her life.
No black to be worn.
Difficult day for her family, but – like everything else in life –
this too shall pass.
Trying to find a positive in this sad loss here,
I am so grateful she and I got to work together on stamps and designs in her last year,
and that we as an arty community got to push her artwork into the limelight again.
That did her the power of good too.
I will never ever forget the live conversation we had with Jayne on TV just before Christmas. That really was a special moment.
So before I get all tearful,
I would like to leave you with a little floral tribute to dear Jayne
