Linnea posted the following during the night after March 17, 2019, about Caroline Paton's condition. Please keep Caroline & her family in your thoughts & prayers!

Update from Linnea Paton (Caroline's granddaughter) on Caroline's health:

Caroline has been on hospice for the past few months. I went to visit her yesterday (Saturday) and she could barely wake up, but when I told her I was going to sing her the Dark Island song she managed to quietly say, "Oh, that's great!" before falling asleep again. When Dave and his band saw her Friday and sang her Wild Mountain Thyme, she also seemed to fall asleep during the song, but at the end of their first time singing she woke up enough to say, "Sing it again!" She also said that she saw Sandy and Lee in the room with her, which I guess is a beautiful thing. Sunday morning (March 17) Caroline could not wake up and she remained unconscious throughout the day. Her passing is expected in the next few days. We are all very sad, but relieved that she is not in pain and appears peaceful.

Love to all,

Linnea
