Sad news today.
I received a message this morning from her husband Eric,
that our dear friend Susan Frith passed away peacefully at home last week, after a long hard battle with cancer.
I had noticed that she hadn’t been on the blog for a little while,
and then dear Brenda flagged it up to me too.
Now I know why.
I remember the first time I met Susan at Ally Pally as if it were yesterday. A petite woman with a huge smile.
She was ill, that was very clear.
She had no hair, and I remember her being very pale.
You could see she had mustered all the strength she had, to come there. In fact, she told me it would wipe her out for a week, but she didn’t care. It was worth it.
Yes, I remember her so well.
She was open about her illness, and told me that she didn’t have long to live, but that she was so excited about her crafting and she loved loved loved Clarity and the TVshows.
So I suggested she join us here on the blog.
Many of you will remember. I know Brenda will, because I asked Brenda to look out for her and give her a warm welcome.
Which of course she did.
Susan was always gracious and positive,
always kind, never complained.
What courage, what acceptance.
She died at home in her sleep, which is as she wanted it.
I do hope she bumps into lovely Jayne Nestorenko!
They will literally be a match made in heaven!
I have borrowed a picture of Susan and Eric.
We forge real and invaluable friendships here in Blogland,
and don’t even know what our friends look like.
What a great photo.
Rest in Peace Susan.
I am sure you will all join me in sending Eric and their children
our condolences and love.
Love & hugs,
