Picture Perfect Polaroids #8

Hello Lovelies.

I have been sat thinking hard about my post today as it’s something I have found really difficult to come to terms with. You may have heard the name Libby Squire recently. On February 1st, Libby disappeared after a night out in Hull. 7 weeks later, her body was found in the Humber Estuary.

I don’t want to focus on the story, the how’s and the what’s. I want to focus on the memory of a 21 year old girl who vanished and died. I went to Hull University. I’ve been to the clubs she went to. I’ve walked down the road where she was last seen. I’m not the only one. We’ve all been there, in this city or any other.

I feel it too because it is not what the people of Hull are like. We are a community. We are a city who look out for one another.

As a city, we are mourning the loss of a beautiful young girl. My heart breaks for her Mum, Dad and family. For her friends and loved ones. The city is grieving with you; for you.

This polaroid is of the memorial bench where Libby was last seen. I’ve added my own bunch of pink roses and a card. It’s the least I could do.

So, hug someone you love just a bit tighter today. Find comfort in those around you. We will carry on. We will be the strength for her family if they need us.

Heaven has gained an angel.

Big love all xx

    • It’s just desperately sad. We need answers but at the moment it’s her poor family I feel for. The flowers are going to be turned into potpourri apparently. The family don’t want any waste which I think it just lovely. We realise a communities strength when we are feeling our lowest. Hope you’re well lovely lady. Xx
