Silmaril Lush's father has died

Not all Downers are on Facebook so I though I'd make an announcement here for those who aren't.

Our beloved Lush, now a journalist of international repute, lost her father yesterday to Covid. It is a deep loss for her. They were separated by thousands of miles, by the boundaries of several countries, and by the pandemic regulations against travel, but nonetheless were very close. Great heart will not be denied.

So sorry to read this. I didn't know Lush, but can only imagine how hard this must be.

I add my voice. I did not know Lush well on the Downs, but send my condolences to her wherever she is. Мои соболезнованья вам и вашей семье.

This is the sort of sad tale that highlights the impact of Covid: the double-whammy of the fatal illness and the the travel restrictions of the pandemic. As an expatriate child, I was fortunate to rush home when my mother passed to say goodbye and to bury her. To be denied that on top of the sorrow of losing a beloved parent... there are no words, only heartfelt condolences.

I realize this is from a few months ago, but Bethberry (or anyone else who's in contact with her), if you could pass along my condolences to Lush, I'd appreciate it. And let her know that I always enjoyed her contributions here back in the heady days of this forum.
