Us: "How are you?"
Grandad P. is proper poorly.
It's over 8 weeks since he had major surgery
and he is still mostly bedridden.
When I met up with him last week,
I barely recognised him.
He's not afraid of dying.
He's lived a good life.
It's us who are having difficulties
in facing up to the fact
that his end is nearer than we want it to be.
Please hold him in your thoughts and prayers.
