My dear Lainy
My heart really goes out to you, reading that your darling man, Teddy, has passed. But you were with him every step of the journey, to the very last - and I feel it has indeed been a privilege to share a little of that journey with you.
Do you know the piece entitled "The Ship"? I will do my best to paraphrase:
A ship sets sail from the harbour and those on the quayside wave farewell until it reaches the horizon, passes from view and seemingly is gone. But, as those watching and waving farewell lose sight of it, there are others beyond the horizon seeing it come into view, and they welcome the ship into harbour with great joy - safely home!
Teddy is indeed now safely home.
With love to you and all your family.
