It is very rare that we come into contact with what can only be described as a beautiful soul. Bel was one such soul. She was sweet and funny, cheeky and cheerful. She radiated a sense of sheer delight, and every encounter with her left me smiling.
To all of her friends and family, and her devoted husband, I send my most sincere and heartfelt condolences. The scars left by this loss will never truly be healed.
Go with peace Bel, knowing that the world is full of people whose lives are better for having known you.
The world will ever be a darker place for so bright a light now no longer shines.
