Last weekend one of our neighbours died. Ken wasn't that old - 64 I heard. Cancer. He and his wife Sue bought a plot of land here about 25 years ago and built their own luxury bungalow.
Ken's fight with cancer started not long after he moved here and remained with him on and off over the years.
His funeral, at our church, St. Michaels' takes place on Thursday afternoon. I am unable to go but Jon will attend to represent our family.
It's at times like this that the village comes together.
