October to December are the darkest days. From time immemorial people have been driven to find and use light sources to chase away the darkness.
In recent years these months have become tainted by loss.
November 2014 and now December 2015 click on the mouse friends have passed away. In both cases the tyrant cancer claimed their lives.
Words can not express the chasm left behind by their departure. Their families have a long painful journey ahead as they come to terms with what has happened.
Unlike yesteryear blogging has enabled them to share their loss and their feelings. In one case the person kept her blog going as long as possible. It remains a rich vein of memories.
I shall not name names, it would be disrespectful to do so.
Farewell my friends.
