IT'S been a bit quiet of late hereabouts. A friend of the family, that is a friend of each member of the family, succumbed to an infection that grew from of a chest injury and suddenly died. The valiant efforts of the professionals at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge and the waves of love and good wishes from all who knew her were most welcome, I'm sure, but in the end not enough to save this young woman in the prime of her life.

Grace Peeling was taken from us at the obscenely early age of 26, but will never leave the people who knew her. We are all much poorer for her passing, but much, much richer for having known her. Grace was on my mind one day last week when out walking I noticed that the field of barley I was passing was turning to the rich, golden shade of the summer. From now on the ripening of springtime crops will remind me of Grace and the goodness and promise for the future that she brought to all who knew her. Some things truly make no sense at all.
