Tributes flood in
I spoke to Allen earlier and he was so touched to receive 50 or more sympathy cards this morning, some addressed just to Allen and Endal. His postmen are wonderful for finding the right house aren't they!
Flowers have been filling up the house, too.
Allen is reading this blog, but is only reading a few tributes at a time as he finds it just too emotional otherwise.
Allen confided that had been afraid that due to his head injury he would eventually forget Endal. But instead he is finding on waking he doesn't remember he has gone. He says it is a bit like Groundhog day as he has to go through the hurt afresh every morning.
Allen says that young EJ seems to have grown up quite a bit in the last few days. I guess with Endal gone, he realises it's time to step up to the mark.
He's still not quite the little angel yet, while Allen was talking to me he rolled in fox poo!
Allen thanks you all so much for leaving these tributes, I'm sure they'll be much treasured by the Parton family. It's wonderful that so many people are finding their way here from all corners of the world.
