Sadly, after a very short illness, Sheila´s 93-year-old mother died of cancer on 9th December. She spent the final week of her life in a hospice, where she received kind and gentle care. Both of her brothers, our sister-in-law, and two grandchildren were with Mom when she passed away. Sheila was able to speak to her by phone a couple of hours before she passed, as were our daughters. Mom was too weak to speak, but Sheila´s brother told us that she smiled as we were speaking to her.
