Still tearful over Wogan's passing

Published 08/02/2016

How can I feel so bereft that a man I never met has gone? Though many hours have passed since I heard of Sir Terry Wogan's passing, I still keep finding tears rolling down my face. As he would say, I look a right eejit.

I'm sure I'm far from the only person who knew him just through radio, or television, and yet feels as sorrowful as if an actual family member has departed.

But that was one of his many gifts: to walk in and make himself right at home in our hearts.
