The voice behind BBC Radio Bristol’s weekday morning’s topical phone in and heard around the world on BFBS TV
Dear John.I listen to you every single day from Madrid,Spain.I was just so sad when I heard about it..and I just want to say THANK YOU for being back. You simple have no idea of how helpful you are to others through your work.
Looking forward to listen to you every other weekday.xxx
Thank you. I will be back on Monday
I very much enjoyed your interviews of Cecilia Sparke Gaz Owen this morning on the Backgammon and other board games theme. Did you know that Gaz and another player from the Bristol Club, Julian “Jooles” Fetterlein, are also Backgammon Grandmasters, currently the only two from the UK. To put this into perspective there are currently only about 30 Grandmasters in the World. Also, Andy Murray and Tim Henman are both keen backgammon players!
Executive Director of Backgammon Masters Awarding Body (International)
reading your article, had my heart racing, reliving my daughter’s death over and over. My daughter Bianca 23 was shot and killed April 24th of this year (2016) And i am having a very very difficult time accepting my and my family’s loss. every day I open my eyes and have to force myself to get out of bed and go through my day without her. I look at my other children and see the pain in their little eyes too, missing their older sister, My oldest son missing his baby sister so much. I know they are wishing she was here to share the accomplishments of their young lives but yet we have to go on because life goes on…. I want to write a blog or journal, something that will help me get all this out of my head, I just don’t know where to start.
You, we are members of a club, a group that nobody every wants to join.
I’m writing this to you with my ten year old son and six year old daughter playing close by. Simply you will never get over this. You can’t. I can’t. Your daughter, like mine, is yours. She is your flesh and blood and part of who you really are. The rest is noise and nonsense. Your joy is with her and your son as it is for me with my three children who live, love and will go on (I hope) to have happy and long lives.
In the night, in the wee small hours your heart will ache, you will be filled with memories and reminders. You will relive events and the rawness of April will hurt. The only way I get up each day is to rationalise that the pain I feel is all because of the pure joy my dear, dead daughter gave me. She wound me up too. She wasn’t a saint but she was and id my girl. To have lost her was and is unbearable but to have never had my daughter in my life at all would have been a true loss.
And write. Write how you feel and about what Bianca means (present tense) to you and your son. Write about you and write about your thoughts.
