Always pleased to get e-mails - I always answer - and will arrange skeds on request. QRS if you need to.....
I write this with extreme sadness - Ann, my constant companion,for over 48 years, best friend, Moher of our two children, died from Cancer related problems on June 3rd. this year. Our two "children" now both in their 40's were by her side . Just the day before her 70th birthday the medics dropped the bombshell:. It did not seem possible then but in a very short period noticable deterioration set in and things happened vey fast.
The three of us are left with many happy memories of out life over the years, and these are what keep us going in th circumstances. our life will never be the same again We are fortunate to have each other for support, to face such a situation alone would be very stressful indeed. But many folk do.
Mail can be sent to me via Email (preferred) or Snail Mail.
