Not alone did he lose his wife on Sunday, but his sister Bridie died on Sunday also.
Dad has been my Mum’s primary carer for the last 14 months or so, since she got a stroke in October/November 2005. His whole life has been dedicated to looking after her and he did so with incredible selflessness. It has exhausted him mentally and physically.
These next few weeks and months as he adjusts to his new circumstances will be very difficult for him. We will help obviously as much as we can. I hope it will be enough.
