A Gentle Man

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.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    My condolences to you and his family.
    Good friends like this are basically family and it is hard to lose them.

  5. Over the years, we’ve lost a few special people like that. It’s good that you got to know him, and you will have many fond memories to ease the loss.
