Saturday 17th May 2014, Beachmere.
We are now back at Beachmere, QLD, so here is more on our eventful week. My sister Joan was diagnosed with terminal liver cancer around Easter and was given about six months. Last week she developed a serious infection and was taken through to the Launceston hospital and when I was informed of this the decision was made to go down immediately to see her. When I arrived it seemed that the entire family had the same idea, and just as well because she passed away on Sunday with the entire family present. It has been a rather traumatic week for most of us as she was taken from us in such short notice, but we rallied and have been able to overcome our grief.
Once again I would like to apologise to all those that we would like to have visited while down there. With wanting to spend as much time as possible with the family in their time of need before we knew it our visit was over without seeing anybody, but we are hopeful of coming to Tassie in the not too distant future for a touristy visit which will give us time to catch up with everybody.
