From Alexia, Anya Emma

It has taken some time for me to revisit this website and to upload anything new to it. Today is the 15th of September; one year on from the day when Emma took her life. So I’m sitting here, in the very same chair that she breathed her last breath, and working through a few […]

From Joe, My birthday tin

I mentioned this tin at Emma’s memorial event on 30th September 2013. Emma gave it to me on – I think – my 15th birthday. It contained several items: A piece of chocolate (still present) A photograph of Emma (still present – this was the item I’d forgotten about!) A piece of “chocolate” (i.e. dope) […]

I will always remember the day we spent in the sun in Alexandra Park. You looked for turtles in the lake. We sat on the steps down to the old bowling green for a long time, side by side. Later, back at your house, you read ee cummings poems to me and I understood their […]

From Chris Claydon, Sailing and Suna

I was lucky enough to fall in love with Emma and we shared a brief but wonderful few weeks of our lives. It seemed like fate had brought us together and I thought it could last forever. She touched my life so fleetingly, so many years ago, but it still seems like yesterday and this […]

From Christian Ainsley, First Date

I remember meeting Emma in a bar in Manchester for a first date and walking away with that rare feeling of having met someone pretty awesome. It was the most genuine, easy and fun date I have ever been on. Were it not for the last train looming, I am sure we could have chatted […]
