AGSD-UK was very saddened to learn of the recent passing of Louise Bett. Louise has been a long time member of the charity and will be remembered for her determined and cheerful personality.
Her dad, Jim said:
“Louise was born with GSD type 3 on the 14 February 1985.
Although she lived with this disease all her life only a few would know as Louise did not want this to define her life or be treated differently from others. She never let GSD get in the way of her goals or ambitions both at work and in play.
Louise had many talents, non more so than her ability to make others feel special and good within their life’s. Her generosity with both her finances and more importantly her time to others in helping with everyone else’s struggles in life were well known to all who cared for her or even if they just knew her for a short time. She could put a smile on people’s faces just walking into a room as she was so bright, bubbly and funny, just full of life and it was so infectious that everyone who was lucky enough to know her would instantly be uplifted by her personality and zest for life.
Her ability to touch your heart was so special to everyone.
Louise never let much stop her in her desire to live life to the full, be it special holidays or nights out on the town or giving up her time even when she may not be feeling at her best.
Louise’s caring, loving, bubbly, optimistic nature was something that most of us can only aspire too.
Louise will forever be in her mum Liz and dad Jim heart for eternity and all those friends who loved her deeply.
Please can we thank Richard Morey and all of Louise’s friends and colleagues at Media 10. We would also like to thank all of her friends in Essex and Scotland and her friends throughout the world who have donated to the fund.”
Donations in Louise’s memory
Louise’s work colleagues from Media 10 have set up a Just Giving page to raise money for AGSD-UK in memory of her. They have exceeded their target and would like to thank everyone for their generosity.
AGSD-UK Trustee Ailsa Arthur commented:
“Our deepest sympathies go to all her family and friends. Our thanks go to everyone who has contributed to the JustGiving fund in her memory. This will be used to continue the essential work the charity does to lessen the load of life with glycogen storage disease.”
