I knew something was wrong when the ipad started ringing at 6.45am. We chat to my mom often during the week but never before school.
Mom called to say that Papie (Den, my step dad) had passed away a few hours earlier. He had been sick for a while and just moved to a lovely dementia home but sadly his body decided it was time to go.
Just before we flew back to the UK in the summer, Papie had a bad turn and so I had to sit down and have a chat with Ebi-kun about the possibility of him not pulling through. That time he did and we did get to see him over the summer. He will be greatly missed.
