paid to former Highbridge school student
have been paid to a former Highbridge school pupil who has died
this week after a long battle with drink-related problems.
Hurley, a former student at King Alfred School, died on Sunday
at the age of 42.
number of tributes have been paid to her by friends here
on Burnham-On-Sea.com's forums.
mother, Enid Lloyd, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "She made many
and kept friends all her life. At 18 she had it all, brains and
looks, but she wasted her talents."
was funny, fiesty and lovable. She had strong opinions and would
listen to arguments, but still think she was right."
years ago her children were taken away and put up for adoption
because of her drinking."
grieved for them the rest of her life, we begged her to stop drinking
but she would always ask why, what's the point."
shall miss her so much - she made me laugh even on bad days. She
lived with her partner in Ilminster."
her death means that just one person stops drinking that would
be a lasting legacy and make some sense to us."
