Memorial Tributes

Lots of messages on Facebook around the Memorial on 21 June.

Rachel Spink: I wish I could be at the memorial gathering in London today Lou Lou. I developed some film the other week and found this picture of us at “The Schneider’s”… sitting on the couch in our swimmers, smoking, listening to music and talking about nothing. What we did every afternoon. I miss you so much and hope you’re happy wherever you are x

Daisy Fairchild: xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox time a million xxxx

Trigger Trotter: louise you would have been so proud of us! we love you and miss you all the world and more! Xx

Tamsin Both: A beautiful day to remember our dear Louise and how much we loved her xxx

Jemma Japhet: Louise Cattell you are missed so much xx

Daisy Fairchild: Louise Cattell. I love you !!!

Laura Campbell: Whenever I feel angry, sad, ungrateful, impatient basically anything negative I think of lou and how she would turn it around and she still does because thinking of her gives me the power to think positive and just enjoy life! “Enjoy yourself enjoy yourself it’s later than you think” thank you lou for being in my life xxxx

Gaffy Gaffiero: Today was a really beautiful thing. Well done everyone. we really gave louise the tribute she deserved. X

Then after the memorial the tributes started flowing. I wrote:

Thank you everyone for yesterday just for being there, to the performers Cara Park, Nathan French, Gaffy Gaffiero, Dion Troubadour Power, Dan and his trumpet, the hula girls, Tim Arnold, and Zachery Stephenson; for your donations and contributions from the floor; for your support and love through this difficult time. Sorry that though Lou brought us sunshine, the wind was too strong for the lanterns and the teelights are still in my bag. As Zak said, she would have been in the Edinburgh Castle and not being swept away on Primrose Hill…there is always another time. We will do the ashes maybe on winter evening when its dark! We will be posting photos and film on the website soon for those who could not be there. Loulou we miss you – love always and forever.

Zachery Stephenson: Fantastic memorial to Louise today. Now to raise another glass to Louise. X

Zachery Stephenson I have played hundreds of gigs to many thousands of people but I have never been so nervous as when I went up yesterday. Glad people have been nice and said I was ok because I definitely didn’t feel it.
Fantastic day though.
