My Dad, Ian, died on Sunday morning. He was an avid collector of heart conditions and he finally acquired the full set.
Suffice to say, Mum did not arrive today. She has postponed her trip for a fortnight. Owian and I might make it over for the funeral next week but the new baby is due on the 12th so it's all a bit touch and go.
Thanks to everyone who's got in touch already to send their regards. It's sad that he won't be meeting the next little McFarlane - especially after he got on so well with grandson#1:
At least he got to see England win The Ashes this year.
