Fine Visit From Marianne.
Fine Visit from Marianne this afternoon, it was good to see her, it was the first time in three weeks.
On Sunday she called me very upset, she had just got back from a weekend at her sisters, and her two cats Ted and Lewis were ecstatic to see her back home.
Both were being stroked by her, Ted was rolling around happily enjoying the attention enormously.
Suddenly he let out a horrible noise and went limp and was instantly dead.
What a horrible shock for Marianne and Lewis, she stayed home yesterday, so she could try to get over Ted’s death.
Glad she took the time for herself and also good for Lewis, who was extremely upset and sat all day by the spot his brother died.
Really happy Marianne rang me on Sunday; she is good like that she has always treated me normally.
Glad she did not think ‘oh, better not worry Herrad, with her handicap’; despite only knowing me like this, she has always treated me like a friend not a handicapped person.
She is a fine woman, glad we have met and I have had the opportunity to get to know her.
Brilliant that both of us were looking on the same day, me for a volunteer and Mariane wanting to be a volunteer.
It was serendipity.
