Yesterday morning I checked the blogs as I do most mornings over breakfast and saw Jaq's post with the dates at the top and realised Les had passed away. I couldn't stop the tears.
He was such lovely man, he was one of the first friendly people we met when we embarked on this life afloat in 2007. Since then we followed his love story as he met and fell in love with Jaq and they got through all the red tape and they married. We've followed their blog as they bravely told their story with no holds barred. Our paths have crossed occasionally over the years and the last time was in April 2012 near Prees Junction, I hadn't realised five years had gone by.
Now his story has ended, his pain is over but I feel Jaq's pain as do the rest of the boating community. Once you'd met him you wouldn't forget him. Our thoughts are with you Jaq and your families.x
