Obituary: Revd Ali Brightside

Sad news about my old friend, Ali Brightside of the Wilbywell Benefice.

She was always so cheerful. Her motto was that life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.

She was tragically struck by lightning on Saturday night.
