Time to Say Good-Bye

One of our dearest blogging friends and mentors, Sue Vincent, has just released her last post. She suffers from metastasized lung cancer and has faced her mortality with spirit, grace and profound insight. I will miss her terribly. Here is her last post. Sue, we love you and we will carry your spirit and memory forward in our hearts.

The Last Post?

This may be the final post that I get chance to write for the Silent Eye… that decision has been taken out of my hands. I spent much of last week in hospital, having, as many of you know, been diagnosed with incurable small cell lung cancer last September. It has been an interesting and informative journey on so many levels as familiar things have been stripped away and a gift of love left in its place… rather like the tooth fairy leaving something of real value in place of a discarded incisor.

    1. I met Sue at one of the London Bloggers’ Bashes. I wish I had had more time to spend with her in person! But we’ve been corresponding…

  1. It’s interesting that as we get closer to our end our perception sharpens.
    I sent Sue some of my eagle shots. She said she liked them.
    I would never be able to be as courageous or eloquent!
    I wish her well on her journey.

  2. The incredible thing, Noelle, is that she is still blogging and responding, against all the odds. I check in every morning. So brave! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    1. I was lucky to meet her in person, Charlotte. It was at an annual blogger’s bash, which has been suspended because of Covid. Always held in London.
      Sue is just indomitable and such a wonderful writer!
