Dear students and friends
It is with deep sadness that I write to let you know that Estrid, the figurehead of Echo from it’s beginnings in 1988 until her retirement last year, has died after a long and brave fight against pancreatic cancer. She died painlessly and peacefully on Saturday evening, surrounded by family and loved ones. She was an example to us all, making the very best of the good moments and treasuring them, and suffering the bad with determination and without complaint. She was an important part in the lives of many, and in particular in those of us, her children and family.
Some already know, and we thank you for all the messages of condolence we have received. She was a fine lady, and will live in our hearts, in the influence she has had on us, and through her life’s work, Echo.
