It's strange as I was thinking of her only this morning as she was one of those people who seemed like more than just a blogging acquaintance but who suddenly disappeared from the scene.
I thought I must have done something to upset her when I found I wasn't allowed into her blog - she could be a touchy lady - but Sally tells me that she cut off most of her blog friends when she became ill.
It is very sad news: although she could have a sharp tongue and a biting wit, she was entertaining and we talked of meeting up especially when it was rumoured that there was to be a ferry across the Bristol Channel that would enable us to practically pop next door to visit each other.
Yvonne loved her animals and found comfort in them. She was disabled by her deafness so may be she found it easier to communicate with her beloved dog than with people. She did have a loneliness about her that seemed to go deep although she joked about it.
I'm sorry we never met and about her decision to go it alone at the end, without her blogging friends. The blog world may be a virtual one but the people are very real.
