    I know it's technically not an LL posting, but just read the sad news about Carol Barnes passing away, kind of hit me since losing my mum so soon - we were at and Elton John concert last summer in Hove and Carol was sat behind us, I remember thinking that we had better seats than her, rotten thing to think, I know.

    Hope her family are okay.

    And what about poor Patrick Swayze? They reckon he only has 5 weeks to live. My mum died of pancrieatic cancer, so I know a fair bit about it, and can see why treatments haven't worked. Its awful.

    It is horrible, when people are so young as well, although they were saying about Patrick Swayze that the 5wk thing wasn't true, but you never know, he might just want time to spend with his family, really sad.

    It is really very sad to hear of Carol Barnes passing...she was exceptional.

    Here is a link to some very nice pictures of Carol. My husband could not remember the name but recognised her face instantly, she was beautiful.
