It is with great sadness that I must inform you all that my battle with the ‘Big C’ has come to a final conclusion and I have “gone home”; Cancer may have taken my body but my spirit lives on.
Please take a moment to remember me and keep my family in your thoughts during these times. A subsequent post (or posts) will be placed giving details of my funeral and festival of remembrance.
I leave you with the following words from “The Lord of the Rings” by J. R. R. Tolkien
Roads go ever ever on,
Over rock and under tree,
By caves where never sun has shone,
By streams that never find the sea;
Over snow by winter sown,
And through the merry flowers of June,
Over grass and over stone,
And under mountains in the moon.
Roads go ever ever on
Under cloud and under star,
Yet feet that wandering have gone
Turn at last to home afar.
Eyes that fire and sword have seen
And horror in the halls of stone
Look at last on meadows green
And trees and hills they long have known.
Roads go ever on and on
Out from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
Let others follow it who can!
Let them a journey new begin,
But I at last with weary feet
Will turn towards the lighted inn,
My evening-rest and sleep to meet.
