Celebration of The Father

How do you write this?

My Dad died last night.

I have come off the transplant list to come up to Liverpool with my brother to arrange the funeral.

We are being inundated with good wishes and wonderfully kind words from all who knew him and many who didn’t. It seems he touched many hearts.

I won’t go into too many details right now – but I have had a very interesting day with people who make bereavement their business -including those who looked after him and his belongings at the hospital – and especially the incredibly efficient folks at the Coroner’s Court. Cause of death has been officially registered as “not natural” due to the fact that he was admitted to hospital with a broken keg following a fall. The inquest was very interesting.

The Coroner specifically requested that we celebrate my Dad’s 84 years – and that is what I intend to do.

And for the first time in nearly three months I am not awaiting a call from the Liver Transplant team.
