Streetmap doesn't know where Crownhill is or for that matter Danstead Way when you do the search for them, but then, hey presto, when you bring up the MK map there they are, and I thought Streetmap Search was updated regularly. Crownhill, for those like me, travelling from somewhere else, is bordered partly by Danstead Way and the Watling Sreet.

Oops, Yellow pages has a typo in the crematorium address no wonder Streetmap couldn't find it.

People are funny.

Not every one who is feeling pain inside displays it on the outside. Some put on an external happy act, but sometimes the cloud of blackness can suddenly overwhelm.

Subject: Musicians at the funeral
From: GUEST,Steve at home

Some of Julie's folk club friends will be accompanying the songs at the funeral. If any of you who knew Julie from the music sessions wish to play, we'll be arriving at Crownhill early to tune up and quickly run through everything. As the funeral starts at 10.45, we should get there about 10.15.

Obviously, we need to keep the number of musicians to a manageable level. If you'd like to play, can you let me know through this thread, or if the Mudcat is down, email me at steve_parkes@hotmail.com.

Sorry I won't be able to get to the funeral, but I'll be thinking of Julie at that time. May we always have music.

I don't know how much has been donated in total, but the Stony Stratford A Capella session last Tuesday raised £63.60 and Bedford FC last Thursday raised £100. It will be a week or two before the final total is made known, and I'll try and let everyone know then.

Subject: Julie: a brief candle
From: Steve Parkes
Date: 18 May 04 - 10:02 AM

I've been trying to put my thoughts together; it's been more difficult than I'd imagined. Towards the end of 1999 I'd mentioned to a few colleagues that I was looking for a singer to team up with. I already knew Julie to say hello to, but it was a surprise when she came up and volunteered; I had no idea she sang. Hearing her sing was even more astonishing: she had such a clear, bright voice.

We only had time for a single appearance together when she was forced to spend several months off work with what was then thought to be repetetive strain injury (RSI), brought on by using a computer keyboard. People kept asking me "where's the lady with the lovely voice?"

Eventually she returned, and Julie began joining me at Bedford Folk Club. There she discovered a love of traditional music: she dug out her old fiddle, bought a new recorder and a new guitar, and started going to music sessions; she even helped found the lunchtime weekly Folk Club here at the Open University. I'm no great shakes as a musician, so I never saw her at any of the sessions. Well, my loss was everyone else's gain, and I was really very happy to know my erstwhile protegée doing so well.

I'll let others fill in the other details; I'll just say that she made friends everwhere she went, and dazzled everyone with her warmth, charm and exuberance. She was known and loved in almost every folk club and session in Buckinghamshire and the surrounding counties, not to mention Hull and Beverly, where she was a familiar face -- and voice -- at festivals.

Recently she'd been off work again. This time, her illness was recognised as lupus, an autoimmune disease which tends to attack the joints and lead to arthritis-like symptoms. But right up to the last, she was her old cheerful self. It sounds trite, I know, but she really did light up the hearts of all those she met. God bless you, Julie.

Thanks for sharing your friend with us, Steve. I think I can see her now. On behalf of friends everywhere, thank you for being a good friend, and for seeing her so clearly.

Another farewell, and another reason to make every minute of our lives worthwhile for someone, as she evidently did.

Un abrazo,

It's been a year since Julie went from us. A couple of weeks ago, I unexpectedly found myself at the place where she died. I'm sure you'd like to know there was no unhappy feeling there, no spirit longing for release: I believe Julie's spirit is at peace. I came away feeling so much happier.

Thanks for sharing that Steve. I've thought of Julie many times over the last year. I'm sure she's at peace now. Thoughts are with family & friends.

The collection in Julie's name raised £800 and was divided between Riverside First School who bought a selection of small instruments and Lovat Middle school who bought 2 keyboards.
When I last heard her Mum was still trying to trace a donation from a couple called J & J something so she could send the thankyou letter. I wondered if this might be Joan & Jim from up North, if anyone has an address for these people perhaps they could PM me and I can pass them Julie's Mum's phone number.
