Just a short posting today. For those of you who read my early blog postings, will know that at that time my partner was Thelma and I spent my days down in Dorset. We met in 2000 on a holiday in Italy and despite the age difference, she was 17 years older than me, in many many ways she was a lot younger than me. Back in 2004 she contracted small cell Lymphoma and was given a good chance of recovery. Sadly this wasn't to be and on Friday 19th March she passed away peacefully I'm told by her daughter. Thelma and I spilt up in 2009 and while we weren't together we still kept in touch occasionally.
She was a wonderfully up beat person who had had a lot of disastrous things happen to her over the years, but each time she came through smiling and laughing, laughing her infectious laugh. The last time I spoke to her she was more worried about the snow and getting to hospital than her treatment, which summed up Thelma up so well.
RIP Thelma, you were one of life's gems.
