|60th wedding anniversary|
He had a good death, surrounded by his family, dying peacefully in St Johns Hospice just outside Bedford.
In all of this I have much to thank God for. Dad was a quiet, consistent, unassuming, hard working father. Loyal to my mother and his family and was well loved by many people. During his final 6 months I was able to spend lots of time with him, although much of it for him was in hospital. Even there he was always keen to 'show off' other patients to me who had an interesting life story.
I thank God for hospice care and people like Cicely Sanders who was so instrumental in the development of the hospice movement.
