In August we laid to rest Len King. This was, of course a sad occasion for the whole family, but one in which we can also rejoice because we know where he has gone. When we emptied his room at Figham House, we brought back the remainder of his contents in a few Ikea bags. This was all that was left after we moved him from his house to ours, then ours to Claremont, and then Claremont to Figham. What it brought home to us both was that, at the end of the day, the material stuff – however much or little we have – is meaningless. That which we truly leave behind is not in stuff but in people. It is in our friendships and especially in our family. Only such a deposit really matters in the scheme of things. Invest in friendships; invest in family, and you will not be without a legacy.

God bless.
