And, following on

Yes, following on from the last post.

The last post. That cannot be played just yet.

We got news last night of my nephew, Carl, who was killed by a hit-and-run driver early on Sunday morning.

Though his body was found at about 5.30 am, he wasn't identified until 4 pm, as he had no id on him.

He will have to have a post mortem then, when the perpetrator is found, they may want their own done.

So his body may not be released for some time.

This is devastating for his parents, my sister and her husband. And their family. My thoughts are with them, as are my family's thoughts. We cannot contact them as we have been estranged for some years. And, she doesn't want me to ring.

I remember when Carl was born. His mother and father had come to visit while mum was accompanying dad on his lorry rounds. She had some stange pains, she told me. We sent her home and he was born during that balmy August night, some 28 years ago.

Rip Carl 1979 -2007.
