Kerry Lomman was one of life’s special people. We met in St George and become friends through our art connection and later with dragon-boat paddling on the Balonne River. Kerry initiated dragon-boating in St George in response to her challenge with breast cancer. She also developed another very rare type of peritoneal cancer and endured some of the most arduous surgery and treatment known. In all the time I knew Kerry she never deviated from being a friendly, loving, giving, enthusiastic and motivated woman.
On the afternoon Kerry left this mortal life I was walking on the beach in Brunswick Heads. This unusual rainbow appeared on the beach. The sky was a rich bright blue with clouds over Cape Byron and a streak of rainbow light like a final brush stroke cast across the sky. A perfect way for an artist to say goodbye!
