My brother, Geoffrey F. passed away this afternoon at 5 p.m. It was sudden and unexpected as although he had been ill for a long time, he had only gone into hospital for a period of five days for treatment to his legs. Yesterday we were told he was doing very well and would be home on Friday.
So it has come as a terrible shock. This now leaves me as the last remaining member of my original family and it is a horrible feeling.
Geoff and I had a stormy relationship on and off all my life but we had become closer in the last year and when all is said and done, he was my brother and it is true that blood is thicker than water.
His suffering is now over. God rest his soul and grant him eternal peace.
Goodbye, my brother.
