Just a note

Hello...

 I wanted to let you know that my dear friend Eileen passed away yesterday evening.....



She never asked me for anything, certainly not to undertake responsibility for her, and be her primary carer. In fact she never wanted me to know how ill she was because she knew I'd be upset. When I did find out and found her in a hospice, where she'd spent a month with no visitors, I made her a promise - As her own children were not going to be there for her, I would...I would take the journey with her and be there till the end...
  I kept my promise...3 long months and 7 heart wrenching hours by her side yesterday have left me numb,exhausted and brokenhearted
My wonderful son and lovely husband have supported me and helped me throughout my quest to honour my friend and you lovely people have been amazing, keeping Eileen and I in your thoughts and prayers, giving me the strength to continue when many times I felt overwhelmed and out of my depth. 
To you all - I thank you with all my heart.

In the midst of all this there has been much going on and yes, much neglected... My adored great nephew Ross is in hospital as I write and our family are once again in turmoil...I've long forgotten what normality is...

Tomorrow I have 2 posts scheduled and then I am taking a little timeout. I won't be visiting your blogs for the next few days but I know you're fine with that. 

Hugs to you all

~ Ros ~
