    I’m glad his family are with him to share these moments.
    Having just lost my Dad myself (His Funeral is tomorrow), I know how difficult these times are. Tomorrow we am not going to mourn my Dads passing (nobody is going to be turning up in black, or else!) but we are having a celebration of his life as he moves onto the next.
    Although he will be greatly missed by some, to me, he will [i]always[/i] be with me.

    My thoughts go out to you Jan, your family & friends at this time as it isn’t an easy time.

  7. So sad to hear this.
    My thoughts are with his family and friends.

    My thoughts to Jan and his friends and family. Stumbling upon Jan and Gus’s fantastic website was the first time I realised the true extent and wonder of british and particularly scottish rock art. I have been gazing and tramping in wide wonder in the years ever since.
    Thank you Jan. We only met by email. I shall of course keep rocking! Peace to you and yours.
    Huge respect
