For those of you who may remember me mentioning our friend Simon who ended his life in October, last year, at Dignitas. There is a programme on BBC2, 9.00 pm tomorrow evening (weds), on Assisted Dying. It is called Simon's Story. It will present both sides of the argument. It will be hard for us to watch but we will do so.
I have heard from JJ, he is fine and I have copied and pasted some of his email for you to read.
" I'm afraid I have so much going on that I'm taking a sabbatical from running so that I can cope properly with the rest of life. I haven't said goodbye because I intend at some stage to make a reappearance but it's taking longer than I expected. I still can't resist building in some sort running exercises into the twice-daily dog walks. We still have house jobs being done and we're up to 6 grandchildren now. MrsJJ has hit 70 and the celebrations still seem to be on-going. I also have to get the garden really up to scratch because we are having it open to the public twice this summer for charity.
You can see that something has to give and temporarily it's the Running
Regards to one and all and I've not forgotten anyone. Keep them posting and I will catch up at some stage"
