As most of you will have heard, Gary died unexpectedly from a heart attack on the morning of Wednesday 10th.
I take immense comfort from the fact that he knew I was with him and that it all happened quickly. I also know that both the incredible team of emergency paramedics and doctors, as well as myself did everything we could to try to save Gary. A team of 7 arrived very quickly in ambulances and by helicopter, providing emergency care for Gary at home and to the John Radcliff Hospital where he sadly passed away.
We have been overwhelmed by the love that the village has shown to us, from your messages, flowers, food and offers of help. In time we hope to be able to spend time with you, and take you up on these offers. It has really shown us what living in a community like ours is really about.
We have decided to have a private cremation and when we are able, will get together with small groups of friends and family to share our memories.
For now, we are looking forward to September when Grant gets married and Lauren starts her final year at University.
Thank you for your love and support
