It has been a sad day.
John, our next door neighbour, passed away, peacefully, at home, at the age of 85.
He was a lovely man and the best of neighbours. We will miss our chats over the garden fence, our shared pots of tea, showing him the pictures of our trips, and chatting about mutually adored places such as the Pyrenees.
Our condolences go to all his family and friends at this sad time.
