So Ann Green, wife of stevegreen, died on July 29th after two weeks in hospital [Ansible]. And, unsurprisingly, Steve doesn't know what to do with himself.

I'm going to the funeral today, and I dropped Steve a note to that effect. He writes:
    I am relentlessly amazed at the efforts folks are making to show their respection and affection for Ann. (Not completely, though: I always thought she was incredible.)

It's good that Steve had someone whom he thought was incredible. It's good that Ann had someone who thought she was incredible. I wish all of my friends had relationships like this. It's the best kind of relationship to have, and it's a tragedy when it comes to an end.

If your whole life is wrapped up in being wholeheartedly part of a relationship like that, it's a huge hurdle to recognise that there's still life to be had after such a relationship comes to a close. I hope Steve copes.

We have been thinking of Steve a great deal and also hoping he can cope. Ann was a lovely woman and we miss her.
