Before they left, Hazel led us in a prayer of thanks for Jeff's life, as well as our own, and asking for strength and guidance over the next few days. I swear I felt an arm go around me, and even from my position sitting on the floor, I knew that no-one had got up and moved towards me.
After a beautiful prayer like that, you would think that I would at least have offered them something to drink!! :-P
I feel much calmer now, thanks to them and Caroline.
Thank you to everyone for your kind words. You don't know how much they (and you) mean to us.
