Once in a while, someone comes into your life completely out of the blue.
A bond and friendship follows, and it is a privilege to know them, to be included in their social time, to feel like family, and for them to show concern for you when you’re down on your luck or in poor health.
We received a call this morning to say our friend had died at home in the early hours.
He was 82 and passed peacefully away surrounded by his family.
He was a husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and friend to many.
He will be sadly missed, and our thoughts are with his wife and family.
