In 1973, as his only son Ken was being viewed in his coffin, Dad took my arm and said “I’ll walk with you, Sandra”. I’ve walked with you since Dad and yet that walk is the one I remember best.
There was one other “online” walk we took together, the one which connected us back to all Doggers since 1600 (1580).
Years ago Dad and Beryl were in Holland and connected with some family. They were warmly greeted as guests given tea and had a meal together. All this took place in broken English and Dutch.
When Dad and Beryl took their leave this kind gracious family asked “Just who did you say you were anyway?” Thank God for the hospitality of the Dutch! ~~ Sandra
