...it was very quick - a DVT and pulmonary embolism and he died without any pain or notice - jut as we had wanted. Daughters arrived - first within an hour with son in law and the two others from Manchester about two and a half hours later. They are still here and having a sleep, I'm too wired to sleep. Hubs has been collected and we all spent some real quality time with hubs before he was taken away. We did all the Monty Python jokes plus reminiscences and the two daughters who were nurses wanted to wash him and prepare him. He almost looked better than he had done when he was alive! Lots of irreverence, tears and snot - just as he would have wanted. In a way that was our 'celebration of his life'. Nearest daughter is coming with me to the funeral directors on Monday and they are determined they want to be involved. Don't know how I feel - am I allowed a feel relief?
