If I have been quiet lately, it is because I lost my father in the early hours of Sunday April 14th. Although the exact cause of death is unknown, in a nutshell it was old age. He was 84.
He leaves my mum, my brother and I and our wives and children, all grown up.
He had a passing interest in astronomy and he was looking at my photos the day before he died.
I am proud to call him my father.
