Unfortunately, Monday morning, my brother in law (my wife’s brother) passed away at the age of 47 from bowel cancer. Although Richard had been ill since August 2011, his diagnosis and then death was very quick – shockingly so. Being 3700 miles away is somewhat tough for my wife right now. But she will travel back to the UK as soon as funeral arrangements are finalized. Fortunately she saw her brother for two weeks in February, although she had no inclination that that would be the last time she would see him.
May the Lord have mercy upon his soul!
