Crimson Goodbyes

M, Nadine and I are safely back home on the sunny island.

We are all doing fine and better than I initially thought upon learning of my mother-in-law's death.

I'm glad though that the funeral organised for my mother-in-law had an atmosphere akin to that of an autumn afternoon soiree. Everyone wore red of some sort - her favourite colour. Her coffin was draped in red. Did I tell you that the leaves even turned crimson red? We stayed up late that night and just yakked away - it was amazing.

Thank you to those who sent us emails and text-messages. They kept us sane and grounded and strong - thank you. We could not have been where we are now without your support.
