‘I adored him. I knew it was wrong… in some way it was wrong… and that he mustn’t know.’
Just a few weeks before her death, John recorded a conversation with his mother, Margaret, on his mobile phone.

In this short piece, we unearth a family secret and learn how an unexpected visit helped John grieve.
