Yesterday evening I taught my weekly class at the library. After I’d finished, the head librarian took me to one side and told me Sue, one of the librarians there, had died. It was cancer and she hadn’t known she’d had it so the end was quick and relatively painless, which offered some degree of comfort.

But this was Sue. Happy, smiling, fun, lovely, helpful, chatty, and occasionally daft, Sue. I liked her. She was one of the good ones (people, I mean. All librarians are good).

It made me sad.

And I just wanted to mention it here.

(And please, if you do think something’s wrong, do go and see a doctor.)
