Sadly, my Uncle passed away this last father's day. His health had been suffering for some time but he went peacefully in his sleep. My cousin and girlfriend did a wonderful job of looking after him in the three years after his wife died. He will be missed.
Luckily, weddings have outnumbered funerals this year. Some friends got married in the Spring and my cousin Tanya got married in the Summer. I seem to be at an age where weddings and funerals happen in equal quantities.
