Goodbye Jen

You may remember I wrote a few weeks ago about my lovely friend Jenny who was battling with cancer.
Many of you who read the post went on to donate money towards the pioneering treatment she was receiving in Germany. I'm so proud of you all that did. Giving to someone you don't know is the simplest way to be reminded that there is still so much good in the world.
So its with a very heavy heart that I have to tell you that Jenny passed away over the weekend. She and her husband Andy couldn't have done more. They kept kicking the door down on that terrible illness even when they were told things were hopeless. Jenny was truly inspiring and her relationship with her husband a masterclass in true love.
Jenny you will be missed by all who knew you. You are at peace now with all the pain taken away. I am going to wear black Channel nail polish today in your honour as I remember you wearing it on your wedding day, we had such a good laugh that day and as always you looked fab. See you later chick xx

Jenny Roberts -Beautiful, sassy, greatly missed.

    1. You are most welcome. I photographed jen when she got married and fell a little bit in love with her. Ive remained mates with her ever since and am so sad she is gone. She was just so funny and cool. I remember the last time i spoke to her in the flesh rather than over facebook etc she had been to Stonehenge and had a very spiritual exsperince so she seemed very switched on to the idea of there being more than our human forms. I only remembered this conversation last night when I coudnt sleep for thinking of her.

  6. Losing someone is rubbish isn't it. I lost my mum a while ago and although armed with bereavement counscelling, it hurt like hell and still does from time to time. Death does make people feel uncomfortable but I learnt to ignore all that and cried if I wanted to, where ever I wanted to. I talk about her frequently and remember her with a song in my heart and surpressing an inapropriate giggle - she would like that and I think your friend you have loved your blog post x

  8. Wasn't she a beauty? Isn't life so bloody cruel...I am really sorry for your loss Betty Bee, allow yourself to wallow and mope and cry and anything else you feel like doing.
    I lost a friend to breast cancer five years ago......she left a three year old son. It's heart breaking and I feel your pain.
    May get myself some Chanel black too in honour of Jen.

  10. What strength and determination this young woman had and she was such a doll, A total reminder of my best friend who we lost 2 years ago this March. She was taken from us after a long battle to Ovarian Cancer, she was only 17 when she was diagnosed, completely unheard of in someone so young. She battled for three long years but we did everything together, we travelled, we worked for charity we did what normal teenagers do, now I am living for both of us. She was the most beautiful human being inside and out and I miss her every single day.
    I am truly sorry to hear about your loss and my heart goes out to her husband and family.
    Betty Bee I love your blog and all the great work you do :)

    Take Care of yourself
