We knew Andrea wrote poetry, but it was not until after her death that her brother found this complete opus of poems on her laptop, composed between 2003 and 2009 and already arranged into groups (the headings are all Andrea’s), and with her Preamble already written, in typical Andrea style! We, her family, are very happy to now complete Andrea’s task and finally to publish her poems. We are very grateful to those special friends and members of Andrea’s family who have each contributed comments on some of the poems.
Andrea was beautiful and brave, witty and clever, funny and (definitely) scatty. She was a private person, trying to be independent in spite of all her problems, and never complaining about the hand which Life had dealt her. We think that everyone she came into contact with, in whatever walk of life, went away feeling better, inspired, touched by her light.
We are so proud of her.
