Mike. I am truly very sorry that you lost your wife. I can't imagine how it feels to lose a partner.
I lost my dad to cancer 7 years ago. Im still not over it. I hope time is kinder to you.
Just have to let him know you're there for him. Chat, tea, that sort of thing. I've got a neighbour that's gone through the same thing as me last year. I just pop round and chat about lathes and rubbish cars, helps us both out I think.Lons":e7e366ty said:It's horrendous to lose your wife at such a young age, I can't imagine how you must feel, condolences just doesn't say it.
My neighbours 13 year old granddaughter had a large brain tumour removed last year and he's recently told me that her last 2 scans show that it's returned and growing much faster than the original so she needs surgery again. What on earth can you say to a guy with tears rolling down his cheeks when he tells you a story like that :shock:
your favourite uncle - he must have been a great inspiration to you.He was Favourite Uncle. He can make anything. Boats, tools, steam engines, anything. When he made a clock he started with rod and sheet brass.
