Lorraine

At a recent concert I went to of Coldplay's, Chris Martin dedicated a song to Jennifer Hudson and her family. An otherwise upbeat in tune song turned into a beautiful dedication, a testament of loss. It touched me and I feel is appropriate at this moment to show it -- video.

This afternoon an online friend of ours passed away. Writing it is not the same as thinking it. Our online friends are not people that weave in and out of our lives, there for a laugh and gone again. They are who we are, they are real people, and no matter how many miles separate us, one thing remains, they are part of our lives, and when they die, a part of us is gone forever. I will miss Lorraine. I know that she loved me, and I will love her always. Goodbye, my friend.

And the hardest apart
Was letting go not taking part
Was the hardest part
And the strangest thing
Was waiting for that bell to ring
It was the strangest start

I could feel it go down
Bittersweet I could taste in my mouth
Silver lining in the clouds
oh And I
I wish that I could work it out

And the hardest part
Was letting go not taking part
You really broke my heart
And I tried to sing
But I couldn't think of anything
And that was the hardest part

I could feel it go down
You left the sweetest taste in my mouth
You're a silver lining the clouds
Oh, and I
Oh, and I
I wonder what it's all about

Everything I know is wrong
Everything I do it just comes undone
And everything is torn apart
Oh and that's the hardest part
That's the hardest part
Yeah, that's the hardest part
That's the hardest part

I miss her too. Getting to know a little about all of you through N.com, Violet's and Mr.X has been an honor and a pleasure.

I shall miss Pi very much. I got to know her through Nigella.com and (more recently) Violet's pantry. What a beautiful tribute to a wonderful lady. xx
