Thank you for your comments and messages of support. Mum has read them all and they made her cry. I purred to make her feel better and I also let her give me lots of hugs. If it wasn't so stupidly hot I would be snuggled up against her all night to give her more comfort.
We can't have a funeral for Uncle John yet because he has to be brought over to England from Sweden but we heard they are flying him over next Wednesday.
Of course, Mum and Granny are heartbroken.
