I’ve been MrFlighty over on blog.co.uk since the end of 2005 but have really only kept that blog active as I’ve a few good friends there whose blogs I have always enjoyed.
One was Isadora whose posts always conveyed her joy of life and, being of a similar age, our viewpoints often tallied.
She underwent a major operation last September which although successful proved to be ephemeral as by the end of the year she was unwell again. Early this year she was told that the disease had spread to such an extent that nothing further could be done.
During February she did a friends only post So Hard informing us of the devastating news. Subsequently I sent her a personal message which ended…I will consider that the gladioli that I grow on the plot to be Isadora’s from now on and when they flower I’ll quietly say I hope you like them.
Sadly just two weeks later she passed away peacefully at home.
I was true to my word when I recently took this photo and I’m sure that on the gentle breeze came her soft reply…
They’re lovely, thank you!
