With the help of the good people at CLIC Sargent, I've had a justgiving team page set up in memory of Pads. This means that anyone who is fundraising in future through justgiving can make their page a part of his 'team' so that they have their own page but the money shows on the team page as well. We may be able to get the funeral director's page associated in this way too. There's also a 'donations' page which we can use to put up any further donations we or CLIC Sargent get sent.
How are we doing? That varies a lot. Time passes, which helps. As you know, we also have a wonderfully supportive church fellowship, where Ally's taken on leading Sunday School - everyone says she's very good at it. The kids are all settled back into school. I'm back full-time now. My secondment will conclude at the end of this month.
It was great to see Will (Ally's brother), Vic and Elias, over from Australia. They have followed every detail of our story from afar. We visited the grave and shared meals together and then the whole of Ally's family met in Marlow for a get-together. It was strange not to have Pads there - rocky road dessert was ordered in memory of a previous gathering when, being on steroids, he'd scoffed one 'unassisted'.
