Great loss

I now some of you are aware that we lost my father inlaw yesterday,he had torn his aortic valve and we thought that he was recovering, he sadly passed away lunch time, My darling husband
is ok, but i think to ok, he's gone to work he thinks if he just keeps going that he'll be able to handle the loss better, so bere with me ,our sons have taken it very badly, think i will need to cancel our family holiday as we are due to go fri, so hugs to you all and keep loved one's close.
les nash will sadly be missed he was a wonderful father and grandfather and will always be
close to our hearts xxx
