Sorry about that. It just seems so incredible. Will get in touch with our friends. Do keep me posted on the details.

Yes, sad and really unexpected. We were practising all day Sat, then yesterday afternoon and evening. He was fine and really enjoying the classes. I'll send you whatever updates I get.
I'm still blown away by the fact that I had this simple opportunity to say hello to an old friend, at just the right time. It tells me that God is in complete control of my life, and I no longer question what's going on, then or now. I am exactly where He wants me to be.
And I don't mind mentioning here either that this has been a defining moment for me. In fact I'm quite amazed at how many changes are happening in the quality of my life. All for the better I may add. Rest in peace, my friend. I will grieve for the dead but still take care of the living.
