Deepest sympathy at your loss Bob. Thoughts are with you and his family at this time.
She who must be obeyed says I am spending too much time on this forum. I love her dearly but what does she know?

This morning my wife's uncle died suddenly. He'd been feeling ill with stomach cramps and one of his sons had travelled up to take him to Sligo General, where he had a massive heart attack.

To my wife, he was the most important and loved family member remaining in Ireland. Obviously we cannot attend the funeral and that is making it even worse for her. More importantly neither can one of his sons who is stuck in France.

Not only was he a well loved family member, well liked in the community, known by all as his wife used to run the local post-office (where they continued to live after it closed down), but also widely known throughout Ireland for his fiddle playing - he was performing only three weeks ago.

Under normal circumstances his funeral would have been absolutely huge, but instead there will be a handful.

Death is inevitable, but how cruel to die at this time.
