I cannot thank everyone enough who came to our Macmillan Coffee morning in memory of my darling Koshi on 1.10.2011. We raised 2256 (and rising) plus Fraser , our brother in law, ran the Marathon in memory of Koshi for Macmillan and raised another 875 on Sunday.
Also thanks to all the companies and suppliers who generously donated such fab prizes for the raffle and auction.
Koshi will be so proud....
Oh and ths stunning cup cakes were made by Koshi's mate Kev at Leachkin Bakery , Inverness.

On 1st October my sister Ann and I are having a Macmillan Coffee Morning in memory of my darling husband Koshi. Our Macmillan nurse gave Koshi and I such comfort and help in the last few weeks of his life.

We are having a fantastic raffle and auction as so many of the companies we have dealt with over the years have been so generous.
Anta Pottery , Edinbane Pottery , The Three Chimneys. Skye and Castle Gallery to name a few plus many of the restaurants in Inverness, plus other suppliers of THE fab things we promote at Trafford Bank.

The coffee morning is at Trafford Bank and starts at 11 am on that Saturday.

Last year Koshi decided to plant a rose garden in front of our house and dug out all the herbs and planted some roses. Since his death many of my family and our friends have planted roses in his memory. The one I planted is called "Absolutely Fabulous" as was my Koshi and here is a recent photo of it..

I would like to thank everyone who has sent cards and email tributes to me on the passing of my darling husband on 17th May.
He died in my arms as he wished after a short but determined battle with cancer. That day his soul may have gone to heaven but he never left me. I can feel his presence here at Trafford Bank, when I take our dog for his walk along the canal and at his favourite restaurant.


I have posted 2 of the last photos taken of my darling Koshi. One at home at Trafford Bank and the other on the balcony of our 2nd home in Goa, India where he requested I take his ashes..

You can shed tears that Koshi is gone
Or you can smile because he has lived

You can close your eyes and pray that he will come back
Or you can open your eyes and see all that he has left

Your heart can be empty because you can't see him
Or you can be full of the love that you shared

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday

You can remember him and only that he is gone
Or you can cherish his memory and let it live on

You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
Or you can do what Koshal would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on
