It is absurd. She can’t be gone.
She wouldn’t want you to be angry, but there is anger.
She wouldn’t want sadness, but how can you stop the tears?
How do you fill the hole that has been left behind?
But we will always have her words, her joy and her inspiration.
And gratitude, for her smile we got to share.
Many of you will have been followers of fellow blogger Sue Vincent, who sadly passed away last week after a brave and typically pragmatic battle with cancer. She continued to write until the very end, sharing her favourite memories and charting her ups and downs. Personally, she was so supportive of my own blog and of my books, always willing to share guest posts and always inspiring with her writing prompts. I am relatively new to the blogging community, having ‘met’ Sue about 5 years ago, but she was one of the leading lights, who was there at the very start when this new thing called ‘blogging’ started, and her presence will be greatly missed, it will leave a huge hole in the blogging world. Others have written far better than I, but this is my little tribute to her. Wherever she is now, I hope she’s still smiling.
