Thoughts or Prayers

This morning my grandfather passed while on vacation in Blackpool with my father, and grandmother. My grandmother is taking it hard, they had been together since she was 16 and he was 17, and married for the last 67 years. I am trying to make arrangements to get to the UK by the end of the weekend for the funneral in Sheffield.

Any kind thoughts or prayers are greatly appreciated by myself and the rest of the family. Pop pop will be missed tremendously.
