Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Reg... always liked Uncle Reg. Nice guy. Loved to laugh. And, he could tease... I'll miss him. Mum is shaken but we all knew it was coming. In the very end, it was mercifully swift and painless due to heavy doses of morphine (a drug seldom administered hereaboutst these days even in such cases). The next few days, as have been the past days, will be hard on Mum as her health is waning but she will be the same strong woman she has always been and take it in her usual gallant stride... she is a rock.
