The Bonica roses along the driveway are full of flowers. They're such faithful bloomers and require so little care.
On the weekend we received the sad news that one of my DH's brothers had died in his sleep. It was quite a shock because although he hadn't been in great health for years there was no indication that he was about to die.
Dh came from a family of 6 boys followed by 2 girls. The boys were all very close in age and the brother that now passed away was only 15 months older than my DH who is 77. Due to Covid there will be a small funeral which will be live-streamed ( I think that's the right term). We're 1500 miles away so travel would have been difficult anyway.
The rope that tethers life to eternity
frays when we least expect it.
