Thank you all so much

By Gillian

Thank you for all the letters, emails, cards and blog comments which you have sent me over the last few days. Thank you for the flowers, the photographs of Chris at university before I knew him, and the pancakes left on my door step. Thank you for the donations in his memory to St Richard’s Hospice, which have already started coming in. And thank you to the Librivox Community for the audio tribute which I shall play at the funeral on Tuesday.

But most of all, thank you to everyone for your kind thoughts and words about Christopher. He would have been astonished and humbled to know that he had touched the lives of so many people. It has been a huge comfort to me in the last few days to know that you are thinking of us.

    Dear Gillian
    We join with your friends in sending our heartfelt condolences to you. It was genuinely a real privilege to care for you both, and to be able to talk together in such an open way, as we tried to chart our course through turbulent waters. We wish the journey could have ended differently, of course (we always do); but may you find resources beyond your expectations in the coming days.
    Thank you too, so much, for generously nominating us as a recipient for charitable donations. Rest assured that we will use donations wisely to provide more of the same kind of care to others.
    If there’s anything else we can do – please let us know.
    With kind regards
    Michael Harper

    Dear Gillian
    On returning from holiday we heard the sad news. We are very sorry for your loss. Christopher was such a nice guy he will be sorely missed by many.
    I will be at the funeral on Tuesday.
    Love, Fiona & Bill.
