Hello everyone, Sadly the time has come for me to update you all.
Glen passed away last Wednesday, 15th May at 12.30. It was peaceful, pain free and at home, just as he wanted. A very close friend of ours and I looked after Glen on in the hours before he passed, with sunshine and birdsong streaming into the room.
This happened terribly suddenly in the end, but as we know, Glen wasn’t one to wait around for things to happen to him in life, so it seems sort of fitting that he should apply the same principle to his passing.
I’ve tried to talk to as many of you as possible in the last few days and to spread the news by word of mouth wherever possible. Thanks for your kind messages and support. As a non social media user, I’ll only be checking the blog comments and Glen’s FB activity from time to time. If anyone has any urgent questions, my dear friend Genevieve has kindly offered to help. Her FB name is Gen A Veeve.
Glen didn’t want a big funeral, so we’ve planned something small and private. Thank you for respecting his wishes and our privacy at this time. I know some groups Glen’s affiliated with are already planning their own way of saying goodbye to him. I’d love to hear about any memorials/celebrations you decide to plan. Glen also didn’t want any flowers and had said that if anyone really wanted to do something, they could make a donation to a young person’s arts charity in his name instead. Or, feel free to pick another charity of your choice.
Sending you all lots of love and solace in this sad time.
