Came across this Beech tree on my travels near Cahir Ireland. It may be a ‘Middle of the Road’ Tree, but it’s a beauty. Sadly probably not long left alive in this world. Some nice block work is helping though.
Today I attended a service celebrating the life of Sharon Green, a club member and friend. After a long fight with cancer it eventually got the better of her.
Sharon asked that those attending the service wore something bright. She even made John dye his hair and beard pink! She wanted everyone to smile. I think most of us did at some point as we saw a slideshow of photos of Sharon’s amazing life played on the wall. That said, it’s hard to celebrate at a time like this, it was still a sad day.
Rest in piece Sharon, leave some yamadori up there for the rest of us!
‘I am so sorry to report that Peter died suddenly, but peacefully, in his sleep last Sunday, November 24. It was very unexpected, we had just enjoyed a marvellous visit together on Saturday and he drew a sketch of me as I sat there. His death has been so very hard to accept, especially since we planned to leave for home together next Monday, December 2. There will be a memorial at a later date. Details will be advised on this page. His ashes will come home with me soon. I miss him so very terribly.’ Kate
