26 December 2005 – from Matt’s parents

Playing catch-up here so sorry for the rash of Journals!

This was interesting and well-done. Obviously really upsetting, as he died before he could complete the writing. And Sheila’s part constantly mentions how John was feeling and what he was talking about in Peru just before his death. John’s parts are lively and a little annoying in places, and I think Sheila’s more tempered view works well against this section. So, against the odds, a success, and nice to read about lots of ones heroes too!
