22.02.1975 – 21.09.2020 An inexpressible loss envelopes us, so for now some photos that show our infinite love. Good night my love. EJ spent the last three and a bit weeks of his life being cared for by the wonderful women at Dorothy House hospice. I was with him every day and was blown away by their compassion, resilience and kindness. I know he felt so cared for and safe and I will never forget Ella, Jemima, Gemma, Mandz, Clare, Trish, Irish Helen, Scottish Helen, Andrea and so many, many more for whom it was clear it was not just a job. Real life wonder women. Dorothy House is a charity so if any of you can, please donate to them. I really cannot imagine how we would have managed without them. Feel free to share your memories of EJ. Me and Orla and the swan would love to see any photos you all have of his many beautiful makes that have made their way out into the world too. #EJ Osborne #hatchetandbear @ej_osborne
