You've described how it was when my father died, Tom. His children were all in his hospital room and I had my hand on his until the end. Congratulations on your win. You poem brought tears to my eyes. Hugs, Carolyn

Thank you very much Carolyn, it's something that we've all experienced in our lives, and we wouldn't have it any other way, When I got the call that my dad was fading I got there half an hour too late, im glad though that the priest was with him when he passed. Tom

Thank you Chantelle, being with your loved ones who you know are fading is heartbreaking, all you can do is stay with them till the last. I was with my Mom when she passed, something I'll never forget and it stays with you. Tom

This Covid- 19 era will go down in History as one of the cruelest, nastiest virus's to hit planet earth, and I think we are not even 25% into it yet. Very sad write. Blessings
