What Mrs HJ said to me

Mr and Mrs HJ visited the Old Man in mid-2009. I happened to be there also.
At the end of the visit, on the pavement outside the Old Man’s house, Mrs HJ said to me:
“He’s a shell.”
I explained to Mr and Mrs HJ that the Old Man had been diagnosed with cancer. Mrs HJ shed a tear or two.
