OH Linn! My heart is breaking for you and Tom! Hope the Hospice is wrong and Tom can make it another month for your anniversary. It's really hard but a better death when the loved one is there. Chris was totally *out of it* when he died, but I know I was there with him. I believe he did too, somewhere deep inside. Hugs and kisses to both of you. Will try to get up there tomorrow if he's still with us….
Love,
Pam

It's morning. Tom is still asleep. I asked the nurses whether it was sleep or pain meds, and they said he really hasn't needed much pain medication. They said his breathing has slowed, which is normal. I'm sure I'll be able to talk to the doctor in charge within the hour or so.

I slept bettter than I had expected. I think the oxygen machine's susura reminded my body of the ocean.

A phone call from Ranger1 reached me just as I was being shown where these computers are. Right now I need to call someone Tom taught with at Whittier for many years -- he moved to New Hampshire and set up his garage on Tom's recommendation. He talked to Tom last night, but REALLY wants to see him one last time and I promised I'd call this morning.

I'll be back here. We are so blessed with friends. I couldn't do this alone. Well, I could, but it would be an entirely different experience.

Speaking of experience, Tom said the other day this he's looking forward to this...this new experience.

Trying to send as much love and strength as I can to you both, and hoping that my efforts are good enough. Even if I only add one little thread to the blanket of love, light and good thoughts that is wrapping itself surely around you, I will be content.

A good death is all that any of us can wish for, as we step out onto the next part of our journey, and it seems that Tom's passing is possibly going to be such a one.

Deep peace to you both

Linn, I don't "do" Mudcat now, but when I read Tami's post on FB, I had to come here, to express me sadness.
You are both good friends, and I cherish my visits to the Press Room, so I have those memories to sustain me.
You are blessed with many good friends, and Jeri is close by, she'll be a rock for you to lean on, I'm sure. So I know you'll have close as well as distant support.
Blessings on you both.

Sadness is not a word that i can use to describe how i feel. i who am usually so good with words am at a loss to enunciate how i feel.Grief,disbelief,flows over me like an unwelcome tide. Tom Hall taught me so much,guided me,helped me,by kindness,and critic, "Chris, yer a lovely man,and ye write some great songs,but ye need tae get some voice lessons!" He was right ,as always.and i took that to heart.With his advice i think my voice has slightly improved! Love you,Tom and Linn.xxx. If you want to learn more about Tom and Linn.there is a great article in the Spotlight Magazine. 09/26/2013 at www.seacoastonline.com.

I have sat back and followed this journey as a friend from afar. Knowing the two of you, it comes as no surprise to me that you are giving us a tutorial on how soul mates make this trek together. I spent some time on my hill this week, and sang a song of thanksgiving for two good people teaching us how to walk with grace. Tom, you old grump, you are a blessed man to have this partner, and so many people who are happy you have been in their lives. Linn, words fail me. You two are as one, you have always drawn on each other. To watch you as you go through the highs and the lows of this journey leaves me hoping that I have that kind of love and support.

I sing your song.

A blessing for Tom from the ancient ones...

You're going home tonight to the house of Winter
To the house of Autumn and Spring and Summer
You're going home tonight on the music of poets
Fair companions await you on the shores of Tír na n-Óg               
Guardian Angels with you in sleep                        
Brighid the Healer with you in sleep
All Holy Ones surround you in sleep ..                                                                   Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you,
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the blazing hearth to you,
Deep peace of the King of Peace to you.

Fare Well, friend
