Tragedy seems to bring out the best of people in many ways. Splintered social groups pull together; people who havenít really associated for some time can be seen together, sharing in their grief and their efforts to help those most effected. For me this was appreciated so much; a furnished house to come home to instead of the deserted and empty shell I left it as. Even plants have been reinstated to their former positions, shame Iíve got to water them again! But I have food for sustenance and a steady flow of friends bringing comfort and support. Its so nice to share time with Caiís friends as well, such a nice bunch! It makes a change to meet youths that arenít ignorant little shites. Yet another sign of Caiís character, having good quality friends.
Caiís body is in the funeral home over by Gabeís. Theyíve been to see it, I havenít yet. I donít know what to do! I said my goodbyes in the hospital when he died; I really donít know if I need to see a waxen figure laying in a box. I have so many wonderful memories of my life with him maybe that should be enough, only his face and hands are visible anyway. Jeez, I didnít mean for it to become an issue. I didnít even consider seeing the body again, ď been there, done thatÖÖ.Ē Oh well, at least this time it wonít leave me stinking of hospital disinfectant for days after.

The service (a tribute) is to be held at Bangor Crematorium 12.30 pm Wednesday 18th July. Itíll be nice to see support there from all Caiís friends, afterwards there will be a Wake at Hendre Hall, Tal y Bont. If youíd like to share some time celebrating Caiís all too short life join us there. Iím sure thereíll be tears aplenty but we hope to treat it as a celebration not a gloomy, depressing affair. Thereíll be many others to share memories of Cai with.
