I heard some very sad news today. When we got back from holiday last night there were two messages on my voicemail from Sean, Gill's partner, asking me to get in touch. I finally managed to call him to day and heard that Gill had died of a sudden heart-attack (just over a year ago).
I was at School with Gill and we both went on to work for Sainsburys albeit in different parts of the business. I'm pretty sure Gill was younger than me - in her late forties.
Our Christmas Card to them both had prompted Sean to get in touch.
It's times like these when you realise how vulnerable we all are - and when your time comes...that's it!
