In Loving Memory Of Lou
Aglow with the warmth of the
Love still felt for you
A sunset frozen
In time, forever shining
On those left behind
The sun can never
Set on our friendship, dear friend
You live in our hearts
Louise Wood-Roe, my friend and once housemate, would have been 44 today. The memory of her is everywhere and in everything! This sunset image was taken in Kos a week before my wedding. She was with me, a bridesmaid smiling down on us with the warmth and love of the sun that she had always worshipped herself.
As has become my tradition, I remember Lou in flowers every year and I know that she would have delighted in these blooms that I saw in sunny Hyde Park, London, yesterday. I’m sure she would have pulled up a deckchair, poured the Pimms and soaked up the summer vibes.
Lovely to see you back, and what a glorious sunset for Lou. Hope we hear all about the wedding (with photos) soon 😀
I’m in the midst of preparing some posts 😀 Can’t believe I’ve been married for three weeks already! Busy times. The trouble with getting hitched is changing your name with everyone afterwards 😉 Yesterday, a new hospital consultant struggled with the pronunciation of Longes saying “Did I get that right?” and Simon responded “Actually it’s pronounced Williams now”, she looked very confused for several moments while we chuckled and then explained 😉
Hi Sarah, great to see you back, I was only thinking about you yesterday! I echo Jude’s request re your wedding, and we must go for coffee soon 🙂
That would be great Sue! Are you all settled into the new place now? Looking forward to sharing the wedding stories and photos with everyone 🙂
New place will probably not be until September! But I have to be patient 😕
Oh no!! I really thought you’d be settled in by now. September isn’t far off now though.
It takes time to sell and indeed, to buy…..
Wonderful tribute. Welcome back Sarah and congratulations.
Thanks Laura 🙂 I couldn’t miss marking Lou’s birthday! I have so much to catch up on now. Hope you’re well!
You’er welcome 🙂 Doing well here! Mrs. Married One!
Good 🙂 It’s Mrs Williams now although I’m keeping my maiden name on all the art!
Gotcha Mrs Williams! 😀
Beautiful tribute to your dear friend Lou. I have been thinking of you lately, Sarah. So happy to spot your post on my Reader. Looking forward to seeing your wedding photos.
Thanks Amy 🙂 It’s going to take time to get back into the swing of blogging! I’m trying to write up a diary of our time in Kos 🙂 It was wonderful!! Some amusing tales to tell too 😉
Sarah, very good to see you back – and many, many congratulations! And a wonderful tribute to your friend – I’m sure she is around you all the time. These are beautiful images that you have posted. Adrian
Thanks Adrian 🙂 I had hoped to get photos from Kos and stories of our wedding up by now but it’s been manic ever since we got back! It was such a wonderful wedding and Kos was as beautiful as ever 🙂

Thank you and hello Cybele 🙂 It’s been a while I know! Lots to catch up on and all of you to catch up with. May take me a while 😉 Lou would have loved watching the sunsets from Zia. It may happen everyday but no two sunsets are ever quite the same.
🙂 Blessings Sarah and Lou will always be with you!
She will indeed Cybele 🙂
