A short note to let you all know that my father died this morning, in hospital in Redditch, shortly after midnight.

He had been in and out of hospital since a fall in January which broke his hip, with complications from infections, distress and – most recently – a gastric ulcer for which he eventually had surgery.

I don’t have all the details yet, and frankly the details aren’t really important in comparison to the magnitude of the fact, but I am comforted that I got to spend thursday evening with him, and it is good to have had time with him; so yes I am OK. My goal now is to help my sisters who have been towers of strength for Dad over the past 9 months.
