Remembrance Sunday

This William IV silk embroidered memorial picture reminds us of lives lost as today, at 11am, we shall be holding our own remembrances. A lost life is not only entailed by death, but also by the loss of youth and innocence in any arena of war; the loss of limbs that curtail a life that might have been; the loss of thought or speech or sight; and perhaps, most affecting, the loss of that ready intimacy which once allowed the sharing with loved ones of all that inhabits mind and emotions without censorship, to spare them, too, once more the horrors of war which now you must inter within yourself. You are not forgotten. Love does and will abide.
