Sadly my grandad passed away on Thursday 25th Janaury. Grandad Cyril (though his first name was actually albert) died at 88. He lived in Cheshire all his life. He was a strong, hard-working man who made his living from the land. For the last twenty five years of his life he lived in good health in the village where my parents live. Grandad was quite a character and he will be sadly missed.
I postponed my flight to Istanbul for a week to be with my family and attend the funeral. I will now fly to Turkey tomorrow(sunday).
