While I'd not seen her for a while, and neither had Martin. I heard from him before I left that she was very ill from cancer.
I only knew her for a few years, while Martin and I were at University together, but she was full of life and lots of fun to be around. We lost contact after Martin and her broke up, but I thought of the days we all hung out at University fondly.
Martins email this morning has affected me more than I'd expect, and its hard to write about. I know that she had been very ill in a hospice recently, but it's something else to have that final bell struck...
This is how I'll remember her - hanging out and having fun - full of life, rest in peace Lisa.
