Along with many many others I was knocked for six when I hear the sad news of Elspeth's passing. Though I didn't know her that well, I had admired her for many years before we ever spoke and of course knew friends who were her friends. She looked so amazingly beautiful and somehow it seems impossible for such beauty to leave us. My thoughts are with her close family and also with her friends. Best wishes x
