Sad news

Sadly my mother in law Jan lost her fight with Alzheimer's last night and died peacefully in her sleep. She died on her birthday, she was 84 yesterday. We fully intended to be with her at the end but after several hours sitting with no decline in her status we took a chance and popped home to pick up my insulin. Naturally as soon as we got home the phone went to tell us Jan had gone she'd waiting for us to go.

We always said she'd wait for her birthday she loved a celebration. We are looking to celebrate Jan's life with lots of happy memories.



Keith and his Mum Janet.

So sorry to read your sad news Annette. The same thing happened to my mum. I'd just popped home and had a phone call to say she'd gone. I understand this often happens.
