Got home from Sword Fest... Checked messages on landline.... My uncle died on Sunday :-(

Bugger! I called the nursing home on Saturday and walked up the hill several times a day to get a signal and check for messages. Seems they couldn't leave a message.

I may be out of touch for a few days dealing with all the paperwork.

Don't worry I'll be OK... A bit down I wasn't with him. But relieved it was mercifully quick.

Seems he was worse than I thought... The nursing home wanted to send him back to hospital but he refused. I am pleased they respected his wishes. He died in familiar surroundings as I took a lot of stuff from his bedroom to the nursing home and set up the room to look as much like his home.

Not really taking it all in right now. Thinking about all the practical stuff that needs to be dealt with.

What a shock! I hadn’t realised how near he was to his time. My deepest condolences. I think you can be very proud what you did for him …
