As expected, my wife died on Wednesday, but she died where she wanted to die, and in the way she wanted to take her leave. I was assured by the nurse that she did not feel a thing, but it just didn''t look that that.
So now I have to get used to the funny way they do things over here. She was was cremated the following day ( ! ) so all we have at the very informal ceremony will be her mortal remains. They sure don''t waste time.
To make matters worse I picked up a stonking cold but I am feeling much better this morning. I don''t see myself ever wanting to return to NC when this is over ; a pity, as I have made some good friends. There is always skype.
I don''t feel too bad within myself as I had known this was coming for a long time. I guess I will resume posting when the formalities are over. There isn''t much to do in a very very empty house.
