Gramps died on the 27th of March. He held on much longer than anyone thought possible.

We had the viewing today which was sad and hard and awful leaving him. Beautiful when five of us were standing around him saying a decade of the rosary - I was never religious when I was younger but I find great comfort in the ritual and the feeling of togetherness that communal prayer brings.

Ill be back here when I'm back home.
