For Anna


Tomorrow will be quite a sad one for Gail and myself, as we are having to go to a funeral. Not an elderly relative, which is sad in itself, but for a person we both knew called Anna. She was only 28 and recently decided to take her own life. We don't know why yet, but whatever it was, surely it can't be big enough to decide that it's not worth living anymore? She was a manager at the organisation where I work. Gail worked with her for a while. She was a kind and lovely person and the whole building was shocked when we heard the news.

This photo shows the chapel at Corpus Christie College. It was closed when I visited, so I had to take the photo through a glass door. At the entrance was a small table with a little book on it. It was there for people to leave messages or prayers which would be read out during a service. Naturally I just had to leave one for Anna.
