For Nancy, with love

So much has happened since my last post, I'm not sure where to begin...but that can wait.  Today's blog is dedicated to Nancy, our American friend whose mesothelioma journey ended yesterday morning.

We were introduced to Nancy back in 2014 via a mutual cyber friend, fellow meso warrior and blogger, Lou in Australia. When Nancy and her partner Andrew visited the UK later that year, we sent a memorable afternoon with them over a Champagne tea on the roof terrace of the Ashmolean Museum here in Oxford, chatting away like old friends even though it was the first time we had met face to face. The mesothelioma bonds that bind us together are strong and stretch across oceans.....

We had hoped to meet up again with Nancy and Andrew last Autumn, but sadly the return visit had to be cancelled due to deterioration in Nancy's health.  Nevertheless news of her death yesterday still came as a sad surprise.  Our thoughts are with Andrew, Nancy's family and close friends.  We send you all our love.

I'm so glad we still have our happy memories of that afternoon in Oxford, Nancy.  This is for you, with love xx
