Today was a tough day.

But, in years to come I know I’ll look back on it for inspiration and direction.

S1’s mother passed away suddenly, while we were literally half a world away.

Everything for the last week was focused on getting to this day,

I wanted to be there to support my amazing S1,

but I shouldn’t have been surprised, she was a rock,

there to support her father and brother.

We spent the rest of the day with close family,

it was just as it should be, lots of laughs and stories.

There are so many people who I can’t thank enough for their help and generosity.

For those of you who knew Pam, remember the good times.
