Death in Afghanistan; Burial in Lewis
Many of you will know of, and have read of, Linda Norgrove, the British Aid Worker, who died in Afghanistan recently.
Her family are not from this island, but they have lived here for many years, and Linda herself spent some years at school with my younger sister.
Her funeral was held this week in Uig, where her parents have lived for the past number of years.
A 'Lewis funeral' is worth a post on its own, and someday I will talk about it here.
But for now, you can read about Linda's funeral here.
And for now, we simply express our sadness at the death of this young lady.
