Too soon

Really saddened to learn today that comedienne Victoria Wood died today, she bought a great deal of laughter to our house over the years. By all accounts she was a very intelligent and creative person, her performances certain suggest that and from the sentiment of the above song I think I might have agreed with her on a lot of things.

I won't repeat the usual cliches about the disease she died from but as Christopher Hitchens so elegantly said as he suffered from the same, "it doesn't feel like battling, more like resisting". I can only hope that she received the care she wanted at the end of her life, it came far too soon.
