Endings

Hubby's mom passed away peacefully on Wednesday afternoon. They had just moved her from the hospital back to her apartment and had set up hospice care. Hubby was planning on spending the night (they had moved a hospital bed into her living room area).

He changed into his sweats, sat down next to her and took her hand. A couple of minutes later she slipped away.

I can't think of a more peaceful way to go---in your sleep with someone you love holding you to usher you out of this world.

Go gently into that good night, Mom P.
