We'd just come back that morning into Limassol port off a mini-cruise from Beirut.

I recall putting the news on an hour or so after getting home as the news was starting to break. On such a small island as this you find many are related to each other.

It seems bad news comes in the summer to Cyprus...

Yes.

The grave area for those lost on flight 522, in Paralimni cemetery, is immediately adjacent to where my wonderful mother-in-law was buried earlier this year. She gave her whole working-life to providing for kids and their needs. It's fitting that she is with them now - she'll still be looking after every 'bairn' and every parent/guardian who were lost in such tragic circumstances.

May you all Rest in Peace.
