The last few days I have been thinking about a pen pal of mine Kim, this woman was my parents next door neighbour for many years and after they moved to Queensland we have kept in touch and my parents have even gone to Queensland to visit them on a couple of occasions.
Around a year ago she told us that she was diagnosed with cancer of the oesophagus and they only gave a about a year to live, this was terrible news for all of us who know her as she
is was a wonderful caring woman with a big heart.
She never ever forgot anyone’s birthday and would always ask how my girls were doing a long with my grandchildren.
Last night my sister rang me to tell me that she had passed away yesterday afternoon. Even though we all knew it was coming it still was a bit of a shock. Most of my family would love to be able to go to her funeral but since as I said they live in Queensland and we live in New South Wales it may not be possible to get there.
