A life well lived – Sharon W.

1971 – 2020 💛

BoB Hillingdon bid a fond farewell to a much-loved friend and volunteer in November last year. Sharon had been fighting cancer and passed away peacefully.

Sharon was so proud of her recovery and being part of BoB, she started a writing group and she was a very popular volunteer, she was always on hand to reassure nervous service users. She had a warmth and empathy about her and a smile that would light up a room.

She was fiercely proud of her family and they too became part of our BoB family.

Throughout her illness we never saw her complain and she was out and about as much as she could be, meeting friends for coffee and popping in to see us at BoB.

Knowing someone you care about has limited time is incredibly difficult but Sharon was so brave and up front and it was almost impossible to be sad around her.

Sharon will be forever in our hearts and we are so proud of everything you achieved and what you meant to BoB Hillingdon.

Poetry was very important to Sharon and she had a book published – ‘An Unexplained Life’ available on kindle. This is one of my favourites.

‘Remember Me’ 

Remember me when I am gone
I was the strong one who wrote this song
Remember me, it won’t be long 
The laughter sound we used to make
When discussing things, oh so funny
The days when laughter went on and on
 The days when bad things never stopped
The badness seeming to engulf
The lack of energy, the flop
Illness when all systems zapped
 Waiting ‘til we all unite
Hand in hand, altogether as one
The deny the human fight
The go on underneath the burning sun 
Remember me
Remember me
One, two, three
