Thank you Chris for such a wonderful post. I was lucky enough to hear Polly (Donna) speaking about her first book 'Nobody Nowhere' with Geraldine Doogue on 'Life Matters' on the way to my new job with Disability Services as a 'Probationary' Psychologist. I bought the book that weekend and it informed my work with people with Autism, as did her next book 'Somebody Somewhere' ,etc, etc. I was lucky enough to hear her speak at conferences over the years and watch her develop into the magnificent, creative and beautiful advocate she became over her life. It's very sad news that she has passed away but thankyou for letting us all know she did it 'her way'. Love to you and all your family and friends.

I didn't know Donna well at all, but I knew of her through ANI, and she was well respected. She was one of the first autistic people I learned about when discovering autistic community history. Her presence will be/already is greatly missed. Sending love and light to you.



Comment on When grieving the loss of someone who is more than ‘just a partner’ by Lari B. Davis

Dear Chris, The more I read, the more that I want to read! My late wife, Janice, was my Best Friend as well! She used to call me "Chatty Cathy" and told me to "Put the kids away" when out in public! Sincerely, Lari

Tears fell as I read your Memorial. I have DID and my late wife of 40 years died in 2009. Your wife was an amazing individual! Thank you for sharing! Lari

When I first met Polly, it felt like spiritual awakening. Her spirit, unconditional love and brutal honesty were hard to bare at times, but always felt right. Needless to say that she helped me change my life to see all beauty. I used to tell her how when I'm not sure, when I need advice and guide, I see her in my thoughts. She doesn't talk to me, but she lets me feel her energy. And I, in an instant know. I still see her. And she helps me see too!

Hi Lisa, Thanks for that, I wasn't aware of it otherwise we would have included it! It's a lovely poem, seems to date from 1935. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Do_Not_Stand_at_My_Grave_and_Weep All the best, Chris
