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.
One of the things we love to do when we’re in Kos is to watch the sun set over the nearby island of Kalymnos from the mountain village of Zia. This year was even more special for us as for the first time I watched and photographed this beautiful spectacle with my fiancé! Yes, Simon and I got engaged whilst on our holiday this year 🙂 Most definitely a summer of love for us!
