My mum died suddenly. Unsurprisingly, a hammer blow. That's all I can say about it. I've just now for the first time since that call I took in the office, penned many hundreds of words about the experience, but chose to subsequently delete them. It's a very personal experience many of you have shared or are still yet to experience, but it is unique to each of us. It helped me to write those words and see them written down, and I think it was right I was the only audience for them.
It's time now to move on and return to the frontline on the streets in the Winter of '79.
