Dear All, It is with much sadness that I must tell you my Beautiful Mum finally took her last breath this morning. At 6.20am, she finally fell asleep. I was asleep myself when the call came, and all I feel now is a strange mixture of senses...the strongest of which is relief she no longer has to face this. There is a wonderful sense of timing in mum's passing, since today is exactly 2 years since my Dad died. The chances of mum and dad both dying on the same day are unbelievable, so I take a great deal of comfort that Mum died today because she was meant to. She really is with Dad now. Now I just feel a little lonely, a little sad, and a little in shock. But Mum must have taken Dad's out-strecthed hand...and as they were married in life on the same day, they are married in death on the same day. Thank you all for your support. I feel writing this thread very surreal...and as I have read so many like it, it's unbelievable I am now writing my own.
