Seven years to the day I buried my Father, he died riddled with diabetic complications.
Seven years to the day I buried my Father, he died riddled with type two diabetic complications. Like many of his generation he followed the advise of his medical professionals to the letter. He followed a high carb low fat regime. On insulin and ten type two related medications, his last years were blighted and painful. In his younger days he was a Royal Marine, he taught me about boxing and was a fighter to the end.
A tune he loved from the best military band in the world, well he certainly believed it. He also believed the Marines the best armed force in the world. No doubt other men and women from other armed forces would disagree with that. It's amazing the life long loyalty serving in the military so often brings about. Eddie
