A message

Two of my dearest friends lost their husband and father last week and the funeral was on Friday. I wasn't going to blog about this at all, but the friend who "MC'd" the funeral said he had a message for us from the dead, and since I think S would want his message disseminated as widely as possible, I shall do my bit here to help.

Don't smoke.

Just don't.

Oh dear.

Thirded (although I think Thirdcat should have been third just to maintain universal order).

A rotten way to lose good people. Daughter's boyfriend and friends just lost a mentor to the same thing. So sorry, PC.

Ahh, I'm so sorry. I have a sense of how painful this has been, all round, for a long time now. My sympathies to mother and daughter; and to you too, of course.

Both my parents, and my stepfather, died because they'd smoked (one less directly than the other two). I have enormous sympathy for your friends.
