Default Hugh absent for five days

Folks,

Regrettably I must drive to Adelaide and back in the next few days to attend to family matters; I regret the dislocation for customers, and for this forum, but it can't be avoided.

Thank you for your patience. If contact is needed, use the PM facility on this forum,

Apologies

Hugh

Hi Erik,

Thanks for your well wishes, much appreciated!!

Problem is, by 82 we have all sorts of issues with our health, and now the difficulty is persuading her to undergo the lengthy, painful rehabilitation. That will be very difficult....

Hugh

Folks,

I have to drive to South Australia to see my Mother, who is very ill.
I will hopefully be back in Melbourne middle of next week......
I ask my patience with my orders and many emails while I'm away.

Ciao,

Hugh

Patrick,

My Mom sadly died yesterday at 7:30am, at almost 86 years old.
She had suffered pneumonia three times in the last year; this last attack was too strong for her.
My brother (also a Patrick!!) and I spent at the hospital for three days and nights, and had the chance to talk to her, not that well, but well enough to communicate our love for her. She was a very cultured woman, spoke French actually which is VERY unusual in Australia as we almost all only speak English (and rather badly). We was a writer, authored a couple of books, and had a wonderful marriage. We wonderfully accepted my Indonesian wife into our family, and was very kind to all of us. There are also problems in any human being, but my Mom was one of a kind.......
Funeral is 17th, 6 days hence, and we are expecting about 300 people in the church. I've been writing the eulogy and choosing the music (Bach, Elgar).
Thank you for asking, Patrick, you are 1 lovely guy!!

Ciao,

Hugh
