Sad goodbyes. My Stepfather had been ill for sometime after suffering several strokes followed by dementia. On Monday I said my goodbyes to him. I hadn't seen him for several weeks and I was deeply shocked at how in that time he had diminished.
A proud, capable man brought down by this debilitating illness. On Wednesday morning he passed away peacefully, no longer a prisoner to a mind and body that no one recognised and he didn't deserve.
The sun continues to shine here which is both restorative and uplifting. Life goes on and we are left with lovely memories.
Have a wonderful weekend
