We heard the news today, oh boy.

The line from the Beatles song seems a fitting start.

We understand that Gemma died last night. In many ways it will be harder for her parents because they have had days of hope and anguish before losing her. Our thoughts are very much with them, and we would ask you to pray for them, just as you've all been praying for us. I am sure Dan will be very sad to learn of this too.

This morning we saw some of the papers for the first time, brought to us by Richard, our family liason officer. Ruth, the reporter from the Oxford Mail (among other papers) has been very sensitive in her presentation of the articles, and we're grateful to her for that.

Outside it's a truly beautiful day, and we are happy to be out enjoying it as another part of God's grace to us.
