In loving memory ...

I don't usually post on personal, family stuff, but I'm Birmingham again today at the funeral for my nan. I travelled over last weekend to see her and she died the day after I returned to Ireland. She was 92 (just shy of 93) and married for 72 years. It's going to take a while for it to sink in that she's gone. She requested that Just A Closer Walk With Thee by Patsy Cline be played at the service. Here's a live version of the song.

So sorry, Rob. Lost my Dad last year on his 96th birthday. Really hard.
