As many of you know, Grandparents for Climate Action Now (grandparentscan.org) was launched in November 2019 by my husband Warwick and I, with assistance from some wonderful helpers. We started sending an action a week for interested people to take to increase pressure for climate action. By January 2020 over 200 had already signed up with numbers rising steadily.
Then in February 2020 Warwick was diagnosed with motor neuron disease and given a life expectancy of maybe two years. While dealing with all the pressure of this, I somehow kept finding the time to continue researching and posting actions for Grandparents CAN till last November, when it just became too hard to fit in with Warwick’s need for care. I felt I should have told you then what was happening, but I just couldn’t.
Warwick died very suddenly and peacefully on 10 May at home and with his loving family all around him. I hope to start sending you actions again very soon.
