My Dad


Hi everyone I have some sad news today.
My beloved Dad passed away in his sleep just before 11 pm last night. I am devastated .
We had been with him all day. We went home and the Marie Curie nurse noticed a change in him. We dashed back but it was too late. His wife was with him so it is a comfort to no he was not alone/ He has had the most wonderful care. Stepmam, Nurses and Doctors have all been wonderful.
He has had an awful year and the last few weeks have been terrible watching him slip away from us.
He was 90.

I am going to try and remember him as he was Christmas 2012 this is me and my family at my sisters house then.
Left to right, Nephew, me, Sister, BIL, Hubby, Dad & Stepmam.
................
Thanks for calling and I hope you all have a healthy new year.
xx Jan
