Days pass

Dear Friends

Thank you for all your kind words for the YFG, and indeed for all of us here.  The last few days have passed in a bit of a blur, with people coming here to see us, sending us cards and gifts, and all the arrangements to make, as well as a mountain of paperwork to get through.

The funeral is set for Tuesday 22nd in the early afternoon.  We cannot have it in the little chapel here because of the number of people we think may attend, so we are going to a larger one in the town.  We have had choices to make about so many things, but we are getting through it all slowly, and making decisions together.

There are some hard days ahead, but I am confident that we will get through them with the support of our friends, both in real life and on the internet, and that my faith will strengthen me.  The FH would not have wanted us to stop for too long - the fact that the church will be full is a testament to the kind of life he lived and he would want us to do the same.

We will pop in here now and again and gradually come back more often.  Blogging fascinated the FH and he was always amazed at how I had managed to connect with people all over the world, and the fact that blogging friends will be at his funeral would have just thrilled him.  We still have a lot of growing to do here in the Fens - it isn't over yet.

Much love to you all xxx

Thankyou for keeping us updated. As you say - days pass. Glad to hear you are comforting each other and managing to make the many arrangements that are needed at this time. It's important to think what FH would have wanted and to carry on as best you all can. I'm so glad you have support around you and also feel supported by those in the blogosphere. Thinking of you, lots. Today I made courgette muffins from your lovely recipe as the courgettes are coming on apace in the garden and knitted a hat for the shoeboxes, and I thought of you and the girls some more. Take care, Vee xx

I follow and read your blog regularly but have never commented before so 'you don;t know me but...' I wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss. Your daughter wrote a beautiful post to break the sad news. I wish you all peace.
