When you don't know what to say...
We’ve all been at a loss for words
confronted with the unexpected
of the loss of our friend Steven Langford, only 47 years young.
I dedicate this poppy to him, and to his family.
The poppy is, especially in Britain where Steve lived, such an important remembrance symbol.
- The symbolism of the poppy, its use in literature, and its role in the ritual of remembrance is enormous
For me Poppies are a short-lived
indeed, here it symbolises well Steve's life -
which was also too short.
The poppy , flowering each year with the
coming of the warm weather,
brings life, hope, color and reassurance to those still fighting cancer.
