Sad news

Douglas Monk, my dad, at 90.

I just wanted to let folk know that my dad died yesterday and I’m going to be behind with things, like my next video. My dad was 92 and had been in end of life care for a few weeks, and in fact the last couple of years were very difficult for him as he had dementia and had become very fragile. So, recently it’s been a matter of waiting for the inevitable and in truth I am relieved he is no longer struggling. I am not religious but I find myself thinking he can now rest in peace.

  1. You have my heartfelt sympathies. Losing a parent, no matter how old or not-quite-expected, can hurt. For months after my parents’ deaths, I kept wanting to call them and then coming smack into the reality that I couldn’t. We will quietly wait for any recipe activity. Personal life comes first. I will be thinking of you and yours.
