Daughter now in her 20's was on shift at the nursing home she works at: so even without Covid we wouldn't have been able to see her on Christmas day: our boy Charlie embraced some festive cheer though!
The sad part is that it was unexpected. Three months ago he was in good health and then suddenly within weeks his condition deteriorated rapidly. He was a couple months short of his 10th birthday. However he gave us 10 wonderful years and will always be in our hearts and memories.
