Today has been a very long day. It started off with a circuit class and a lovely breakfast. Then ended with a phone call from the UK. Greg’s Grandad Joe passed away. We are feeling sad but also feeling peaceful knowing he is with his Grandma, Mum and Hamish. I know they are all up there together. Joe was always quick witted. He had so much generosity of spirit and was such a kind person. I felt lucky that I got to meet him in person a few years back. Thanks to Greg’s sister Jill we also were able to FaceTime with him and keep him updated on life in Sydney. He also had Facebook which helped! I love that at almost 90 years of age he would share funny memes and videos! He would also love and share everything we posted. The funniest time was when he sent me a Facebook message with a photo of Greg as a six year old. It just said under the picture… “Who ate all the pies..??” Joe was so kind to us always and I am grateful to have known him. I know Greg and Jill were so grateful for him growing up and always being there for them.
Hamish I am sure Grandad Joe is up there taking care of you now too. I am sending you both love and peace today. I lit two candles today side by side to remember you both.
