  1. Of course I will!! It wouldn’t feel right going to New Jersey without sharing it with you all
  2. https://www.instagram.com/p/CVDbawEDBhj/?utm_medium=copy_link I’m sure most of you will have seen this on the news already but after a long 21 months, I’ll finally be allowed to travel to America again in 3 weeks. My flights are booked, and I’ll finally get to see Marsha’s bench in Asbury. As excited as I am, I’m also kind of nervous at the thought that this is the first time I’ll be flying to New Jersey without her being there. I won’t be able to text her while I’m at the airport and share my excitement, I won’t be able to see her when I land or get the excited ‘welcome home’ message she would always send. It’s gonna be tough and I think it’ll make everything seem real finally but I’m excited to finally see Marsha’s husband Ray and her friends who were so kind to me and finally will get to see @MadameMarie again too. Just 3 weeks! I don’t suppose you need me to do a travel diary here anymore but I’ll definitely use this thread to post updates and my journey to the bench.
  3. Ray organised for the celebration of life to be on Zoom and sent an email invitation to me and a few others close to Marsha. I wasn’t sure if it was ok or not to share the link to it but he said it was recorded, so hopefully I’ll be able to share the full thing with you soon
  4. You’re so sweet i saw you had joined the zoom and I was happy to know you were there too & we could share the moment together that’s so true, it was so lovely to see so many people who’s lives were made better by knowing her I saw the photo of the bench!! That was emotional.. My heart is so full seeing that there. When I think of where she is now, I picture her sitting on that bench I’m just so grateful to have known her. I can’t explain how grateful I am, and to have been supported by her the way that I was and cared for the way that I was. She was truly an angel Aww bless you!! I know she would be so happy to have known you were part of it have a good day at work love & hugs xo
  5. I just finished watching Marsha’s memorial service via zoom. It was a beautiful celebration of her life, filled with all of those who love her and were lucky enough to have been blessed to know her I cried like a baby through the whole thing, to the point where I could hardly breathe. I think that watching it really kind of gave me more of a sense of ok, it really happened. It was so beautiful to hear everyone’s kind words though and to see so many familiar faces and put faces to names of the people Marsha talked so fondly of. My heart just breaks. I remember the day I was told she was gone, and I sat outside on the step that night crying and I looked for the brightest star in the sky and I told myself, thats Marsha. She was the brightest light in my life and I’m so blessed to have crossed paths with her. Like, who’d have thought a 23 year old girl from a little town in England would cross paths with this incredible Jersey girl? How lucky am I? It hurts to have not been able to be there in person but I really am so grateful it was recorded and I know that like Ray said during the service, it’s a day I’ll remember for the rest of my life. A beautiful September day where everyone came together to celebrate a truly remarkable person I miss her so much, and I feel like there is a part of me missing. But all I know is that I have to think of the amazing memories that we shared, and to think of her smiling quoting Bruce lyrics to me. That was Marsha and that will always be Marsha
  6. Since it’s Bruce’s birthday today, here is a photo Marsha sent me of her signing a giant Bruce birthday card a couple of years ago. It’s already 6 months without her and I miss her more and more every day. It breaks my heart listening to Bruce still, but hearing him today just made me overwhelmed with emotion of thinking of her and I went through our old messages for the thousandth time. i just thought I’d share this because it makes me happy seeing her so happy
  7. Happy Birthday Bruce. I wouldn’t be where I am today, have made the friendships that I have, found a place that I love as much as Asbury, or have any of the amazing experiences I’ve had if it wasn’t for you.
  8. I’m not 100% sure when mine expires, I’ll have a look this week and let you know! I assume that it will have, I think they only last for 2 years
  9. November I can travel!! It’s been 19 months since I was last in Asbury Park! I can finally see the bench! My heart is going to burst

  12. Marsha actually gave me her tshirt from the MetLife show that was made in honour of Rich. She sent me it as a gift along with another one before the two of us had ever even met. I never knew him only what she told me but every time I wear the tshirt I think of his memory and all the great things I’ve read about him on here. I need to find the documentary online so I can watch it
  13. I remember being 5/6 and taking the lyric booklet out of the Abba CD and learning to read through that I was obsessed that would be fun! I don’t have a pod though I got the dance floor next to the stage .. some may call it ‘general admission’ (but actuallt the most expensive because it wouldn’t let me book it without booking it as a hotel package)
  14. I just saw you tagged me in it so I had a read!! Thank you I didn’t realise maybe other lakers will be there the same night and I’ll get to say hi. It’s been a while since I’ve gotten to say hi to anyone! awwwww that’s so cute!! I’m starting at a new chemist on Monday. I’ve been transferred to a little one. Maybe it looks like the one next to you! That’s so nice. I’m really nervous, I’ve been at my work for so long and it feels like a big change. Hopefully a positive one!!
