RIP Joy

My uncle phoned yesterday to tell me that my sweet and wonderful aunty Joy died. She was my mother's only sister and they were very close. Joy was 85 years old. My sister Tricia is flying up from Sydney today, tomorrow we'll drive to another city to join the rest of the family for the funeral.

I will be back in a couple of days.
