Boo hoo

My poor mom had to be told today that her sister had died suddenly on Saturday afternoon.

It seems her husband had gone out for the morning and he received a call from the warden (they live in warden controlled housing) saying that when the warden got to her house Lynda had already passed away.
Poor William had gone into shock and was blathering away to himself while the warden was keeping a very close eye on him.

Lynda and William used to live in the Falkland Islands (William is a Falklander by birth, I think) but they came back to live over here after William's heart bypass, mainly because of the hospitals over here, but also because it costs a fortune to get from the Islands to England - has to be done by RAF usually.
Sadly, William will need to be looked after quite carefully for some time as it's obviously a massive shock to just lose someone like that.

Naturally, we advised the nurses at the hospital about the news we were going to tell mom, just so they could keep an eye on her.
