Our family has yet to come to terms with the sudden loss of our parents, and our children's grandparents, in a tragic road accident. Kind, generous and unassuming, they brought us into this world and looked after us all, unfaltering, for more than 60 years. We now have to let them go, thankfully together, and with tremendous gratitude for their love, guidance and devotion.
