    Very sad to hear that you have lost your dad, so soon after losing your mum. I knew your dad from coming into reading g our meter at work, I spoke to him shortly after he returned to work after losing Sally, he was so broken hearted but spoke so lovingly about his lovely grandchildren & how they kept him going. Joe, now your are reunited with Sally, no more is your heartache, Rest in Peace!
