It is a difficult day.
The Gorse Fox was meant to be attending the funeral of Julian, an old school friend. A man of boundless energy and fun with whom GF shared five years of his youth. He was a great friend (but always seemed to pip the Gorse Fox to top of the class). His passing was sudden and unexpected and today we were to celebrate his life.
Last night we received news that the Silver Vixen's mother had passed away. Again it was sudden, and unexpected. The family is, of course in shock. Plans for the day have obviously been changed. This is a time for the family to come together.
