Re: My wife has been diagnosed with MND-ALS + FTD - Part 3

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...

You were Julie's tireless champion.

She is now free

She'll be waiting when your time finally comes.

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?...
