Thanks To All


I would just like to thank all of
my friends/fellow poets at Poemhunter
for all the lovely messages of sympathy
and condolence which I have received.
They have been heartwarming indeed, and
have brought me great comfort and solace
following the loss of my dear husband on
4 September 2013.

Your support is greatly appreciated and
valued, and I am proud indeed to be a
member of such a wonderful community.

My very best wishes to you all, and many
many thanks once again.
