"In the midst of life we are in death" - so goes the famous saying. Recently I have been made aware of this more than before with another of my university friends dying from cancer. I expect this is an age thing with more of my own generation dying. In the meantime,we must all milk life like Dame Sarah Storey at the Paralympics. She is the daughter of a university friend.
My son Tim Lapthorn is raising money for cancer research. If you are able, please support this good cause by giving just a little. Every little helps.
"Media vita in morte sumus ; quem quaerimus adjutorem, nisi te Domine,
qui pro peccatis nostris juste irasceris? Sancte Deus, sancte fortis,
sancte et misericors Salvator, amarae morti ne tradas nos."
