My father-in-law passed away this afternoon so after a quick trip to the office in the morning we’re heading up to Alexandra to help with the funeral arrangements. I’ll be back online on Monday.
It’s a very sad time but there’s also a sense of relief: he’d had a hard time over the past 14 or so months since the death of my mother-in-law. They’d been married for 58 years and he was incredibly lonely without her. His health had been gradually deteriorating but over the past few months that gradual deterioration had sped up, leaving him frail and tired. We’ll all miss him but we’re also relieved that in the end, he went peacefully.
