My Darling Has Lost His Battle







It is with a very heavy heart that I have to tell you that my darling Tony lost his battle at the Hospice at 11.35 pm last night.  The Hospice said he was a gent.

Thank you all for all your prayers and kindness over the past eleven and a half months.

I will not be around for awhile but I do have some scheduled postings that I set up for when this happened.

Hugs
