We had a very special service in our church today, to say goodbye to our dear dean who has served in our diocese for more than 40 years. I was to sing in the choir and came an hour before the service started. During the practice I could feel my smart phone vibrating and I knew at once that it was my mother. I also knew what she was going to say.......that her older brother, my uncle John, almost 91, had died.
Before the service started I lit a candle for uncle John, to give him som light on his very last travel.
