A mixed day today

It’s been a mixed day for us in Donnybrook, Western Australia. We travelled about twenty minutes to Kirup Tavern and enjoyed a lunch with a group that Vince plays golf with on Thursday mornings. After their golf game they go to a local café, have coffee and beer-battered chips and set the world to rights. He meal wasn’t really anything special but it was nice to spend time with friends. However from there we went a few miles to an old country hall which mostly stands isolated and unused. This was a very different occasion to where we’d come from as it was a memorial service for a much-loved and well-respected lady from the district. She had passed away at the age of 59 from multiple myeloma, the same disease my sister-in-law has although luckily she is responding very well to treatment. There were some lovely testimonials to our friend who was feisty and mischievous with a great knack for telling stories and endearing all who met her. So don’t forget to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you and in the words of the Irish blessing which was read at the service, may the road rise up to meet you and may the wind be always at your back. The photo is typical of scenery in the area.

We have been away for so long and didn't realise she was sick. We associated with her at endurance riding events but weren't part of her inner circle so we had no idea she was so ill.

Thank you. Our sister-in-law is doing well at the moment but it's not something that can be cured.

She was such a funny, vibrant lady. It's hard to believe she has gone at such a relatively young age.

It is indeed. Now our group of friends are all getting on in years, we are more aware of how important it is to keep in touch regularly.

Aww I am sorry you had to attend such a sad event. I have to go to a graveside service for my grandfather Saturday morning. I don’t even know what time it is or where he is buried yet.

Lovely scenery. Glad you are having a good day. Yes it is important to tell friend you care all the time. Just found out that my godfather who is in the states has been hospitalized. He is 96 and has been partially paralyzed and bedridden for a long time now. So prayers are in order for him today. With everything bad goind on in my world I just cannot take anymore bad news.

That is a grand old age for your godfather although it's a shame he's been so compromised for so long. Sending prayers and hugs.
