My dear wife died of cancer 12 years ago. We have two children who each have two children, and they don’t live far away - so I am a proud and active grandfather!
I was an Anglican priest for 32 years, serving mostly as a school chaplain - a missionary to teenagers!
After my wife died I decided to retire early, and leave the Church of England (long story ?). Last year I was ordained to serve in the (Greek) Orthodox Church, where I am now very happily settled!
