More bad news a short while ago has to make this year one of the worst years in our lifetime. We were informed that Linda’s sister Cheryl has passed away this morning, adding to all the disastrous news we have had all year. Cheryl had been ill for a long time and passed very peacefully in her sleep. Not all of the bad news has been reported on this site for personal reasons, but believe me it has not been at all good.
Our main concern now is to arrange a trip back to Tassie for Linda at least, with main consideration given to the fact that I have a hospital appointment for a small operation over the next week or two that I have to accept when offered, so it is very regretful that I will have to forego making the trip back myself.
