I learnt that a colleague of mine passed away this week. It was unexpected and a complete shock to all that I have spoken to. She was a lovely woman. Always happy to help, a hard worker and often laughing. I have fond memories of laughing with her, she seemed to enjoy my imitation of her lol. After working on the team for about a year one morning I saw her checking my name tag before calling me. I looked at her and burst out laughing, she giggled and I said "After a year you still don't know my name?!". We were both laughing and it became a small joke I'd remind her of. It's a strange thought knowing that I won't see her again. Where I work, unfortunately, people passing away isn't a rarity but you don't expect it to be a someone you work with. I don't really have a point to this post other than to mark the fact that a person who I thought highly of has passed away. I am sad at the thought that I won't hear her laugh or her stories anymore. My heart goes out to her family and all those closest to her as I cannot imagine what unbelievable pain they must be in. The world has lost a very bright light.
