A Time of Sadness and Looking Back

12 Feb

Neil’s father passed away recently. We returned to be with the rest of the family in saying goodbye to this charismatic and much-loved man. His funeral was a fond remembrance and his wake a celebration of his life. I think he would have approved.

With his passing came the sad chore of emptying his home. Along with dividing up the photographs and memorabilia among the many children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren was also the sorting out of so many personal possessions. Deciding what to do with these was particularly hard and time consuming, a duty that fell mostly on Neil.

So forgive the long gaps between blogs at the moment. Normal service will resume as soon as possible. Then you’ll know it!
