My dear friends – hello. There is absolutely nothing on my workdesk this Wednesday – but I was determined to post. So many of you have faithfully prayed for, and asked after, my John. Sadly I need to tell you he died early Monday morning. He had been in hospital for two weeks on those antibiotics, and they had done their stuff. But he was just exhausted with the constant struggle to breathe, and simply died in his sleep there in Ysbyty Glan Clwyd. So, I trust you will excuse a little self indulgence…
Many of you have prayed for John as he has struggled over the past months and years. I thank you, and my daughters thank you for your care and concern.
Two of the proudest days of John’s life was when he led our daughters down the aisle to their lovely young men.

A lovely shot of us all at a friend’s wedding
I have known John for 47 years. He was, as his name suggests, a faithful man; he loved God with a passion, and he loved his family. Two daughters, two sons in law, and five grandchildren. I thank God for all the times we had together – the fun times, and the harder times. I’m thankful I was able to cope as he became more and more dependent on help from others. I loved him. I shall miss him.
I will endeavour to visit folk as energy and time present themselves – please excuse me if it takes a while! Life gets very busy at these times. I feel I am umbilically attached to the phone!!!
