It is with great sadness that some members of our community have lost their lives to kidney cancer. They will remain in our thoughts for a long time to come. We will always remember the good times and thank them and their families for all the help and support they gave to others. Each of them lived their lives to the full despite the limitations of their illness. Their kindness and generosity of spirit shone through. They each showed great courage and were inspirational in their own individual way and helped support other patients by sharing their experience of this disease.
“They don’t die. Not completely. They live in your mind, the way they always lived inside you. You keep their light alive. If you remember them well enough, they can still guide you, like the shine of long-extinguished stars could guide ships in unfamiliar waters. If you stop mourning them, and start listening to them, they still have the power to change your life. They can, in short, be salvation.” (from “How to Stop Time” by Matt Haig)
