In memory of Helen
Today I attended the funeral of a friend, a close friend of Mrs Ham. Brought down by cancer, she had been one of the most vital people you would ever meet. She wore her acute intelligence lightly and always had time for others; there was a lot of heart in her small frame. With a ready smile and inquiring mind, she was always good company, always a person you would trust. Many, many people counted her as a true friend.
This photo was taken in the Ardeche in 2006. We were families on holiday together and she was recovering from cancer treatment yet still mustered the strength to join me for a 25 mile cycle ride. That should tell you a lot about her.
Helen, we will miss you, but are happier for having known you.
