My Gran passed away yesterday afternoon at 3:55pm.
I was at work and received a phone call at 3:45pm to say that her breathing had deteriorated quite suddenly. I raced over there, but I was 5 minutes too late.
Her sister, brother and Mum (who is 102 today) were there with her when she passed, holding her hand. They told me it was very peaceful and she just calmly slipped away. I am so grateful that she wasn't alone and that it was as gentle as it could have been for her.
I am also grateful that, right until the end, she was able to write what she wanted to say and she didn't go too long without food and water.
Thank you all for everything- all the advice and support you have given me over the last year has been invaluable. I would not have coped without this forum.

Love and hugs to you all <3
Every single one of you are warriors
