Oh Catherine. I’m so sorry about what happened to your dad. What have we become as a society? Please tell your dad he is a star and he deserves so much more than that. ❤️ Totally agree with Abi that we will never ever forget.

Catherine . I am so sorry . How are you and your amazing Dad now ? I do hope he is feeling a little brighter and, should he still wish to volunteer, that there is an organisation worthy of him.

What an amazing man in so many ways not least for not being jabbed . Hats off to you both. Please send him my love 💖💖

This is truly despicable for Catherine's Dad. Not just for him, but for the patients in the hospice. I listened to something today on UK Column I think about how we must not forget what has happened to people. The deaths, the loneliness, the way people were treated in lockdowns. Not being able to see their frail relative in a care home, or a sick or dying relative in hospital and the young not being able to have a life etc. Listening to this has brought it back to me. The patients in the hospice most likely could not care less whether someone is jabbed. This is denying much needed help and company for these people as well as for Catherine's Dad. It's funny because today I started to search myself for volunteering roles in my locality. I don't have enough hours of paid work at the moment and want to be busier and do something useful. Will I be turned down because I am not jabbed? When the time comes all the people at these places need to be held to account. They are just as liable and evil as HM Govt with their ridiculous callous policies.

A deep one today Abi, that’s a good thing. We need time to reflect, get angry and then laugh and cry about this whole shit show. Love the people on this Substack, lots of support for each other. ❤️

Thankyou Abi,

Much needed and so very appreciated.

Hope you and everyone here is ok?

Catherine, I’m so upset for your darling dad, you tell him from me that he is truly appreciated for all the volunteering he has done and that he is a true hero.

What a beautiful human he is too Catherine.

Just so wrong , I hope he is feeling a little brighter, bless him.

No wonder you are angry💔💔💔

Death has no dominion, never heard this before , it is lovely and thought provoking so again, thankyou Abi for that.

Loved the schniffer of the Fanny today, top notch as always, the photo of the wig made me laugh too.

Thanks again and love to all

Cheerio 💕

Abi lovely Abi, you have so much compassion for everyone and I believe it’s because you’ve been through so much yourself. Thank you for reading my email today I’m late catching up with the podcast as my youngest son was taken in to hospital today, Alex has Cystic Fibrosis which is a chronic lung disease he’s not very well at all at the moment but hopefully they will clear the blockage in his lungs and he will be home in a couple of weeks.

I am determined to stay positive and to laugh as often as possible despite everything else that’s going on.

Lots of love to all the substack family you’re all amazing. x

I’m a day late listening to Meaningful Wednesday. I love it when you say “don’t trust anyone who doesn’t swear”😂You can definitely trust me Abi😂

What a beautiful letter from Catherine, it made me cry. No wonder the hospice is crying out for help with that attitude. I feel so sad for Catherine’s dad, 92 years and with so much to give but forced out by covid mania. Your dad sounds like a very interesting guy who would be a joy to spend time with.

A lovely poem that Trudi shared. As you say Abi, they can take everything away from us but cannot take what is in our hearts or our minds.

Loved Fanny yesterday. Keep them coming Abi x

I've been on my hols, so listening to this on 16th August.

I can totally understand Catherine's anger over the treatment of her dad. What is wrong with people? I read somewhere recently that vaccinated and unvaccinated should be treated the same now. I suppose it should go without saying that everyone should have had their decisions to be jabbed or not respected all along, but for christ's sake, covid is a cold, A COLD! And I'm sure Catherine's dad would have it in him to stay home if he felt poorly. What has the world come to? That hospice have lost the experience, skills and talents of a altruistic, caring man and they should be ashamed that they have treated him in such an abominable way.

Another good listen Abi. Belated thanks xx

Very powerful. Thank you for your kindness and love. We will win. It’s inevitable when evil faces love, truth and lack of fear.

We will get there in the end Abi. So sorry to hear about your dad Catherine, he sounds wonderful. There must be some places that don't expect you to be jabbed. What a crazy upside down world!
