We Miss You Julie & John

Writing 101, Day Four: Serially Lost

Today’s Prompt: Write about a loss: something (or someone) that was part of your life, and isn’t any more.

John Julie Richard Marriott

John, Julie and Richard Marriott

When we started planning our wedding, we hoped that all of three Marriott siblings in the photo would be there with us. Sadly, John, on the left, died rather suddenly in August. More recently, we lost Julie, my mother-in-law-to-be. Richard, on the right, was able to come and give my bride away. Glad you could make it Richard!

John & Julie were both missed last Sunday but they were very much in our hearts and minds as they should both have been there to see us finally get wed after nearly seven years of courtship. As the mother of the bride, Julie would have wanted to be there most of all and we would have loved to share it with her, happy and in good health but it wasn’t to be. As the mum of my other half she was a big part of my life and I will miss her very much.
