Oh Joyce, how sad for Phil and Rachel and Phil's Mum, to lose someone so close to being at the hospital, but maybe he wouldn't have been able to be saved anyway. Hard for his Mum to have to cope with her op next week but I am sure she will get lots of support.

Hope they can cope with the heartache, and the children will help keep them going.

Morning Joyce, the children know you are still around, as you make such an effort to stay in touch, so don't feel bad. I am sure at some point the family will visit you and find somewhere to stay nearby. Just take one day at a time and stop worrying about the future. Get yourself well enough to make that visit in August or whenever, and go from there

will talk to you later this week, take care

Hello Joyce, So sorry to her this news, how awful for the family especially the little ones.

Perhaps when things settle down, you might consider SKYPE, you can chat and see the family at the same time. My cousin uses it all the time from England to her family in USA, they love it.

Look after yourself
