the wizard says...

The priest, the parents, the neighbours and the friends have all asked the same simple question, WHY ??? and nobody can answer.

A wonderful young lady who comprehensively enriched the lives of all of those around her, from a very young age. Always a smile, always polite, always engaging , always special, but always discrete and never aloof or above others . Discovering life as a young teenager, but a teenager with a difference, a special quality that brought people into her life. The warm smile said it all, a very special person, one who could have chosen many walks in life but one who wanted to help others, those less fortunate. Mental health often is frowned upon, even in these more liberal days, but the brain like all other organs of the body can become ill and mal function. A very complicated organ, one which the rest of the body relies on, but the task was not daunting, it poses a challenge of warmth, understanding, passion, patience and compassion and thats just scratching at the surface, but it was to be the chosen path.

You can guarantee the task would have been met head on with thought and sincerity, diligence and application but above all composure and understanding. We all tread a narrow path through this life and it seems the innocents always suffer. To those left behind we all send our love, understanding and compassion, but nothing any of us can say or do will change the tragic past. We only wish it could.
God bless you.
