I got a phone call from Son Two today. His grandfather, who raised him with us when he was small — this is before I moved south and experienced the family courts up close and personal, and well before Kea was in my life — died this morning.

Over the next few days family is a priority.

UPDATE (Wedbesday)

Son two is now in North Island on way to funeral. Multiple phone calls yesterday. Will look at Bible as it gives me something to do… but not up to work.

My (ex) father in law survived the Japanese invasion o Southern China. He was, by our count, 94 at his death.

Thank you to those who emailed.

Sorry for your loss. I love the phrase “by our count” when reporting his age.
