It was her 49th. birthday on Sunday, she still hasn't seen a birthday card, we should celebrate our 25th. Wedding anniversary this year, but she won't be here, she is already at the stage of not knowing where she is or aware of what is happening around her.

Mr Curly , I found these words in an anthology of poems by the late Revd William Denning and hope that they might help you and your family in the days and weeks to come.

When the night is dark

When the night is dark
and the pain bites deep
I will keep faith
for you

When you feel alone
and far from home
and the soft warm lights
mock your bleeding soul
I will keep faith
with you

When the demons scream
their bitter words
and spit
their poisoned venom to destroy
I shall keep faith

There is a depth
beyond the pain
a still mysterious depth
where I will hold you
with my faith
my love
my hidden inner knowing
that is silent
still and strong
I will keep faith
I will

(William C Denning from "The Secret Garden of my Heart")

kind regards

A small Bible verse for you Curly.
Psalm 18: 28.
For thou wilt light my candle: the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness.

She is brighter and more alert today, a little more cheerful, her chest was not rattling either.
Made the kids feel better too.

Stay strong Curly and look after yourself and your children.
You have a long and hard road ahead of you. If anyone offers help, take it.
Do not do this alone.
Take care.
