Sad news

Mr E passed away at the weekend at home peacefully in his sleep. I was supported during the last week by our local hospice, and especially in his last hours.

My sons and their families have been wonderful, and we are all ok.

Now is the time to grieve and to deal with the bureaucracy that has to be done.

I will be away from blogging for a while, but thank you all so much for your supportive comments and emails which have sustained us this year.

God bless you all.
