An awful goodbye

As I'm sure you have all read, the cricket blogging community has lost one of our own.

No words can adequately convey the sadness of this, but I feel I owe it Amy to try.

Amy was such a passionate, entertaining, engaging and knowledgeable blogger. She shared my inexplicable fascination with Saffers, and laid a claim on Albie from the get-go that I didn't even try to argue with (it's listed down the side of this page and will stay there).

She was also, by all accounts, an amazing person. Hey, anyone who works for K Rudd has my ultimate respect.

Amy was a tremendous ally of this blog, particularly when times were tough earlier this year, and for that I will always be grateful. Her enthusiasm was boundless and her blogs were so much fun.

If any family or 'real-life' friend of Amy's ever happens to read this, please know the thoughts of the worldwide cricket blogging community are with you. Cricket has an extraordinary way of uniting people and Amy was part of our family. We have been robbed of a wonderful contributor to our little world; you have been robbed of so much more. I am so, so sorry.
