Matt, that's terrible news.

As I always say at these moments, nothing I say can make any difference - just know that I' here if you need to talk, rant or just shoot the shit. You know it.
People go on too much about the privileged background of politicians but actually Matt Hancock had a very humble upbringing in an Italian workshop owned by a woodworker named Geppetto who turned him into a human boy.

Having a parent die is never easy. I know. Mine and my wife's moms died within a year of each other.

Is your mom still alive and how are the kids taking their grandfather gone now?

Your dad has led a very sportive life, didn't he?

Remember the good times.

I am so sorry for your loss, Matt.

Your post only gives a tiny insight into what sounds like a fantastic life. I hope all those memories and stories give you some comfort at such a sad time.

I'm thinking of you and the girls.

Nothing I can say will help. I'm glad you had a chance to know your hero for the time you had and that he's been an influence on you. May this help you in the time to come.
There'll be tough times ahead. Keep on going is all you can do sometimes.
Good luck to you and your family.

I'm really sorry to hear your sad news.

It was raining when we drove up the two-lane highway through the long tunnel of trees that led into the black district on the south end of St. Martinville.
