Maya Angelou, the poet, author and woman who inspired millions of American people with her memoirs, died on Wednesday May 28th in North Carolina at the aged of 86. She was one of the first African American women to write a best-selling book and was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for her poetry and a Tony for her acting. She won two Grammys for spoken word albums of her poetry and was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2010.
I would like to say a very big thank you to everyone who supported our Dinner held at The Guide Post Hotel, at Low Moor last Wednesday 14th May.
A final act of love
Below is the story of Sophie Pearce who cared for, and looked after her mother following her death. A moving story spoken from the heart ………
A week ago many of us had never heard of Ann Maguire, but watching the tributes mount up outside the school where she taught for 40 years, is there anyone who hasn’t been touched by the tragic death of this popular teacher in front of her class at Corpus Christie School in Leeds. Her family, who must be truly devastated and completely shaken by the events of this week, have kept a dignified silence and today have given a statement about this lovely lady.
Happy Easter 2014
Wishing everyone a very Happy Easter.
The death of someone very special and precious can leave us feeling extremely saddened and lonely, and this can continue weeks, months or years after the death. Sometimes we feel that the bereavement is taking over our life, and suddenly our families can be pushed on to the back burner, despite their help and understanding, whilst we endeavour to cope with this difficult time.
