Samuel Johnson Shares Some Sad News About His Sister Connie

Samuel Johnson has jumped on social media this morning to share a message from his sister Connie.

Connie is currently in hospice care and has revealed that she is taking a break from social media as it isĀ "all too overwhelming right now".

"Con's needed a lot of quiet time lately to try and comprehend the total headf***ery that actively dying brings.

"No phones, no social media - all too overwhelming right now.

"She just rang from the Hospice (her view pictured) and admitted that this is the most difficult thing she's ever had to face, but in true Connie style she's been colouring in to keep the nasty thoughts at bay!"

Rainbows carry hefty pricetags, turns out.Thanks for showing me that life is what we make it to be. Thanks for teaching me that now can still be awesome, even when you've so nearly run out of now and have no more real awesome left. I wish I could soften your pain, or lessen your fear, or give you something tangible, but tangible clearly isn't in season. I'm proud to walk you to the hardest part of the road. The end. The only part of the road in your life that must sadly be travelled alone. Chin up please, amidst the growing dark my girl. Shoulders back. Stand tall through that savage march, stand big and tall, dear sister, for you have lived a life to be proud of. You've loved well, and you've been loved well which is all that really matters in the end, I suspect. I won't finish with I love you, though of course I do. I'll finish with a simple thanks. Thanks for holding my hand along the way. It's been a stunning fucking ride. I want another turn, for we've spent our lives taking turns, but cancer is greedier and stronger than us. For now. So Little Miss Connie Cottonsocks, I shall now again and proudly declare myself, very truly yours, Your ever grotty and very sad little brother, Sammy Seal. XX @samueljjohnson78
