Absence

I am sorry that I have not posted for a while and should explain.

My brother Steve was diagnosed with colo-rectal cancer last year. He went through chemo and radiotherapy and earlier in the year was told that there was very little sign of the cancer left. However he got increasing problems and symptoms and was told last week he had secondaries in his brain and liver.
Steve was transferred from hospital to a hospice on Tuesday and died early on Wednesday morning. The close family, his parents, siblings, daughter and partner and his own partner were all with him in his final hours.

He was an outgoing, loving person who lived life fully. I miss him so much.


I do not think I have the energy to reply to messages and hope you understand.
