So, the trip to South Africa was timeous after all.  The reason we visited last month was to spend some time with not only the family and friends, but also two lovely people who are both in their 90’s. My daughter’s grandparents have both been unwell over the last year with falls and various other ailments.  The last time we saw them was 3.5 years ago on a trip in 2008.

The time we spent with them on this trip was very precious and we had some lovely times with laughter and talking and shared experiences.

Sadly, today we found out that her grandfather passed away this week! 😦 This was not unexpected, but devastating nonetheless.  So we had the time to say goodbye, although we didnt know how soon he would go, and how grateful we are that we made the trip.  So goodbye to a wonderful man; Alan you will be dearly missed.

in loving memory of a lovely man - Alan Daubney
