Vale Christopher Booth

Chris died peacefully yesterday. He had oesophagal cancer which spread to his bones. I have never met him because he lived in England, but I have been following his journey in his blog and I feel his death keenly. He and I were diagnosed within a day of each other and up to a month ago he seemed to be doing well. It is devastating to lose a fellow traveller, especially one so young. He was only 46. My deepest sympathy to Gillian, his wife.


  1. Oh Joan I am so sorry to read of your blogger friend's death, of course you would feel his death keenly. I think you probably followed him because of your own cancer diagnoses at the same time. You also have had devastating news from your last have every right to be upset. Please know I am thinking of you with hopes that you soon will receive some good news which you so totally deserve. Keeping you in my prayers......:-) Hugs

  2. Very sad. I hate it when we hear these stories.
    Cancer takes way too many lives.

  3. Hi Joan, just popped in to say hello and let you know I am thinking of you. Hope you are doing okay, keeping you in my prayers.....:-) Hugs
