RIP my dad-in-law, Bert.

This morning my dear father-in-law Bert passed away unexpectedly in his sleep. He was 86, but a young 86.

He was a farmer, a WW2 veteran, sports teacher, respected community member, husband of nearly 60 years to Mary, father of 14, granddad of countless children, and great granddad of many more. 

We are sad that he's gone, but thankful that he died the way we'd all hope to die, I think....No terrible disease, no lingering twilight, in his own home after going to sleep at the end of an ordinary day.

Rest in peace, Bert.
