Julie passed away at 23:30 last night, peacefully, not in pain or anxious.

I did my Job just being there for her and holding her hand as she slipped away...

08:45 the next morning...

Son called me from Turkey (There for a wedding) and I totally forgot about last night until he mentioned it (I sent word to all Julie's family who were attending)

I honestly forgot that Julie had passed... I spoke to my Son, who was supportive & brave, until I could speak no more before it all hit me where I had to end the call saying that "I have to go as I am pretty upset right now"

Why did I forget?...
