I am sitting by my mothers bedside as she sleeps peacefully. My father is playing jazz which is wafting its way through the corridors. The view over the garden is glorious in the winter light. I don't suppose I will be here for the end, but I am here for now.

The house is peaceful but for the gently ticking of the numerous clocks.
The world is busy, but here we are quiet.

Quiet and peaceful.

We all sat with my Father in his last few hours talking to him. Even though he didn't answer the nurse said he could hear us. It was a very poignant time for all of us and an unforgettable experience too.
Unfortunately my Mother died suddenly and I always regret not being there with her in the last few moments of her life.
I think you just have to do what feels right for you, we shall be thinking of you.

Praying with you and for you that the peace continues. I remember those moments with my father when there was nothing left to say: they were precious moments.

Love Peter and Fran
