"There's no vocabulary for love within a family, love that's lived in but not looked at, love within the light of which all else is seen, the love within which all other love finds speech. This love is silent."


Certain family members have and will always be within my inner circle. We held my Uncle's funeral yesterday, but we lost him to dementia a couple of years ago. He always loved his family [my Mum is his little sister] deeply and with total commitment. He and his widow have always been a constant factor in my life right from my earliest memories. He was an incredible cabinet maker and it was he who taught and encouraged my husband to make the furniture he does today. It is always sad to have to say farewell to those people who are extremely special to us, but I would always prefer to have had the privilege of having such people in my life and go through this than forgo the opportunity.

Normal scatty blogging service will resume tomorrow.
