1. I spoke to Sam Butler at the Whitworth Art Gallery yesterday. I bought one of the memorial broaches. That meant a lot to me. Mine says, ”in memory of’ and is in memory of my nephew David who died on the 9th April this year of alcohol poisoning. He struggled with a drink problem all this adult life. But prior to his death he had not drunk for about two months. I am not close to my family so still can not get the whole story.But I imagine he just overloaded his system. I knew him as a little boy. And then we lost touch for many, many years. But three years ago we got talking again. A little bit. What hurts me the most is that it never crossed my mind he wouldn’t get better. He was only 47. I just thought he would get better. And now I am crying. so must say goodbye. And good writing to you.
