“Shoot for the moon
Even if you miss
You’ll land among
I came across a photograph of you with Kelly Holmes, when you were about ten years old, taken at your junior school.
She is now Dame Kelly Holmes, and a double Olympic gold medallist.
I don’t think you really knew who she was then; an athlete who was touring schools to promote sport and a healthy lifestyle.
But I remember you were fascinated by this twenty-five year old lady who ran for a living.
Most often, strangers made you feel uncomfortable: you would hide, or go and find something else to do, like engrossing yourself in a book.
With Kelly Holmes, you asked all sorts of questions, not your usual shy self, at all.
Love and miss you so very much.
Are you running around having fun, my Angel?
Blowing kisses to you in heaven.
