Passages

Grenwinae’s father passed away in his sleep at home Friday morning. He had entered the hospital this summer with worsening health, and while this wasn’t totally unexpected it was still a surprise because he seemed to be improving (but slowly).

However, we all recognize he would not have wanted to lose his mental abilities or become bedridden with a slow decline. He also crossed over at home, not in a hospital, and in his sleep. From the position of the body, it doesn’t seem he was in a lot of pain and that can’t be said of many people’s endings.

Life is frail.
