This morning we have received the sad news that Gill Henderson, one of our oldest pilgrims, died at 19:30 yesterday. Gill and her husband Derek first walked with us in the mid 2000s, and after Derek’s death Gill continued to join us each year.
Gill was an inspiration to us all. I remember a prayer stop several years ago where she gave a moving reflection, talking about life in Italy at the end of WWII, when the treatment of supposed collaborators was potentially worse than anything suffered during the war. I’m sure others will have their own memories to share.
May she rest in peace, and our condolences to her family.
Gill’s funeral will be held at St Peter’s Church, Portland Road, Hove at 12 noon on Thursday 13th September, followed by burial at the cemetery in Old Shoreham Road, Hove. Father Jerry will officiate.
