Lighting a candle

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

I just woke up wondering why my face was hurting. Then remembered getting up in the middle of the night for a wee and sitting there crying my heart out for God knows how long. We are now anxiously waiting for them to return home which is going to be very upsetting with one of them missing in person. We expect a service in England will happen this coming week. Feeling rotten right now but life must go on. Poor little girl. She was only helping me decorate a couple of months ago. :cry:

Thanks for your messages all. :hug:

Lighting a candle for Dad - Frank, who we say goodbye to tomorrow. It still seems totally surreal, but here we are. I feel cheated.

We came home yesterday to 3 telephone messages from Mr. Z. sister (in Oz) informing him that his cousin (who was at the funeral this time last year of Mr. Z.'s uncle) has suddenly died from an aneurysm of the stomach so that was a bit of a shock, she was only 68 :shock: The coroner is involved so not sure when the funeral will be.

I never thought I would be in the position of asking for a candle to be lit … however, I have just heard that the son of an old lady friend who I got very close to through the charity Contact the Elderly died yesterday after a 3year + fight with bowel cancer …. Lawrie lived in Canada and was diagnosed round about the same time I got my diagnosis (although mine was anal cancer ) After having surgery to remove the tumour Lawrie refused chemotherapy - preferring instead to go down to Mexico to an 'alternative' clinic :aww: :shock: He really thought he stood a better chance of surviving :rolleyes: My old friend, his mum died 3 years ago, almost to the day, while I was recovering from my operation and still in hospital … I plan to try to get to his funeral that will be in Edmonton. A month ago he sent me £2000 (from his mum's estate) - I think that is what he intended. I had become good friend with him and his wife during their regular visits to his mum in UK..

I shall be lighting my candle this evening. My dad would have been 115 today. He died a week after his 90th birthday, which he was determined to celebrate, on what would have been my mother's 92nd birthday. I'll have an extra gin and tonic too - it was his favourite tipple and the fact that it is mine too is all due to him :luv: :luv: :luv:

Happy 115th birthday to Rat's dad - isn't funny how getting to 90 is so important - my mum, dad and MIL were determined to get there. M&D made it and died within a few days of reaching the milestone - MIL didn't quite get there.
Enjoy your G&T Rats and raise a glass to him :luv: :luv: :luv:

Hello. Not able to be around much due to w@@@ but my very special Nan was born today in 1903.
I always remember because her birthday was the 17th October and dad was 18th November.

Grandad died 21st December 1991. Nan died the same date 1992 and mum passed away in October 1993. It was also the passing anniversary of dad on the 14th October. :hug:

I had understood that Patsy was going to Canada for a funeral, but not that it was Lawrie’s, who I remeber hearing about when his mother died. RIP Lawrie and have a good trip Pat
