A memorial to Emma Lindley

From Patrick Jones, Breaking barriers

I knew Emma through working with her on Quaker Youth music and drama projects and supporting her when she had periods of illness. I was only too aware that for Emma life was both a desperate struggle as well as ecstatically wonderful. Being of a much older generation than Emma but to be treated as a friend and equal was very special – she just ignored all the barriers that are so easily set up between people. I am now feeling very sad particularly for her family who have supported her through her struggles with such courage and commitment. What a beautiful person she was, so full of passion, energetic, bright and full of ideas.

So, what do you think ?
