Today, 20th July, myself and my lovely Annette should be celebrating our 26th wedding anniversary. But less than 14 hours ago Annette's brother Ger died suddenly from a heart attack. He was 56.
He had a mental illness and lived five metres from us with his mother who is soon to be 80.
We are all still in shock.
We awake each day not knowing what is going to be dealt to us.
