A difficult day

It has been a difficult day. The first anniversary after someone passes away is always full of emotion and a reminder of how much you miss that person. Today was the first anniversary since Charlotte lost her battle with breast cancer. Nobody can believe its been a year and not a day has gone by when I don't think of her.

There is so much that has happened in the last twelve months that I want to tell her. The Helix has grown and blossomed. I even appeared on BBC Radio London talking to Paul Ross about it. I graduated from university and got a job - and nobody would be cheering louder than Charlotte if she knew I had managed that. 

Of course, nobody wishes more that she had been here to see their achievements than her own family. In the words of her daughter

Charlotte was an extraordinary woman, who always put the happiness and wellbeing of others before her own. If you knew her, you would know her for her laid back and funny approach to life, she was never afraid to say what she thought and dedicated the latter part of her life to care and help those she didn't even know.

I wrote about her here, this time last year.

Quoting from the blog post on the Charlotte's Helix website...

"We love you, we thank you, we miss you!" - I really do.
