A Tribute Post For Denise Bellamy
Same Difference was expecting to have a posting break until Tuesday, January 3rd. However I post this today with deep sadness.
I have just learnt of the death of well known disability campaigner Denise Bellamy. We have been friends on Facebook for some years. We share over a hundred mutual Facebook friends and we shared membership of some Facebook groups, including the Disabled People Against Cuts group.
Denise was a regular reader and supporter of Same Difference and she often shared our posts online. I will always thank her for that.
It is never easy to learn of the death of a friend. Very sadly, in the disability world, we become used to this experience at too young an age. However, it is still especially hard to get such news at this time of year, when our minds should be on hope and celebration.
My thoughts are with everyone who has been affected today by this very sad news.
RIP Denise Bellamy, thank you for your friendship and support on Facebook.
