Two weeks ago my uncle came into the hospice and we visited him every day. Today in the morning around 8am he fell asleep and died a peaceful death. Generally, his last weeks have been very peaceful without pain. We told him a lot of nice things, but he couldn’t answer anymore but he did not unlearn how to smile.

I always visit my family for an hour before the new year starts, but after that I usually visited friends. Well, this time it was very different.

In December 2015 we actually didn’t know that this would be his diagnosis, but I moved to him at this time to help him with his health issues. Today it really felt strange that this is already a year … Continue reading Happy New Year!
