Derek Alan Boyle, Say It Out Loud

3 years ago the COVID got Dad.

His health was compromised by the dementia and he had been sliding out of this life at a fairly rapid pace.

Then the COVID popped in and got him.

He was loved, respected, and a wonderful uncle to his nephews and nieces.

It's funny how that last one struck me when they told me late last year, I never think about how uncles are and are meant to be, but Derek was a good 'un.

I shall raise a glass of wine to him tonight and spend time thinking of him and also my relationship with my kids.
