I woke up feeling a little sad this morning. Today is the 1st anniversary of our good friend Eric passing away.
I can't believe it's been a year already; it still seems like he'll pop round any minute, or I'll get a crank call from him (Eric, you were a bugger for doing that and you got me every time!).
So today we will be remembering a truely great friend and thinking about his wife, my lovely friend Ann, who will be finding today so tough. However, she has a good family round her to support her and me and Emily called in to give her huge hugs yesterday. Tomorrow she's going up to the Angel Of The North to lay flowers. Every year, Ann and Eric would take a trip up to Gatehead for the weekend as our Eric was a bit of a shopaholic, and the Angel statue would always symbolise the start of the weekend.
So, here's thinking about you Eric, we miss you.
