At 4.40am yesterday morning (22/2/13), my husband took his final breath. I was with him until the end, and I know that he is in peace now.
I spent some time today with the funeral director and walking around the crematorium finding a beautiful final resting place. Trying to get the eulogy and funeral details sorted, but I'm not in a good head pace right now.
If you have a loved one who is going through this hell, make sure you have the tough conversations with them about what they want in regards to their funeral. It has made my life so much easier knowing I am doing exactly what he wanted. I hate that I have to do this, but he would have been happy with the arrangements so far.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
