At the end of last month I wrote a letter to Lord Saatchi commiserating with him about the death of his wife, Josephine Hart, from the dreaded ovarian cancer. I met her a couple of times at her poetry readings, once with Bob Geldof who was very friendly and flirtatious. She sent me two of her poetry anthologies with DVDs when I started teaching in prison.
I took the opportunity to ask if he'd like to help with our charity, Ovarian Cancer Action. I was a bit worried about doing that as she'd so recently died, but I have had a letter from him thanking me for my "inspiring words," and adding,best of all,
"All shall be well..."
