This year’s Remembrance Sunday parade will be my 10th as a Bridgnorth Town Councillor. On Sunday I will be reflecting on past sacrifices in the cause of freedom with the rest of the country. For me this year will be particularly poignant, not for anything associate with the event directly but for more personal reasons.
This Sunday it will be 3 months since Julie died and this will be my first parade with out her at my side since before I knew her. It will take all of my strength just to put one foot in front of the other. However difficult this will be for me, I will want to make her proud and take part in the way she would want me to. After 3 months the pain is still raw and the huge sense of loss remains. Not a day goes by with out me shedding a few tears thinking about her, the tremendous contribution she made to my life, the lives of our friends and family and the world around her.
