In 10 years of hospice care, I trained myself through intuition and paying attention to the obvious things in front of me to know when something was dying. Part of my job a pair of those who are closest to me and closest to the person dying on what to expect. There’s something terrifying about the unknown but even in a difficult time such as death, one can experience solace in knowing that the hospice nurse told them this would happen. Innoway I was a profit but not because entirely of intuition sometimes when you see something happen over and over again you just understand the patterns. The difficult thing is communicating that to a person, how do you tell someone they’re about to lose someone they love?.

maybe you can remember back to the story of Passover. Moses said stay inside, prepare food, have a to go bag packed and ready. Be with your family. Those the ones those ones you love the closest. And my angel of death will Passover you outside. There were three days of darkness where no one could see their hand in front of their face. I would like you to think about your hand and possibly what you were holding now in your hand. Prepare for darkness that doesn’t mean communication stops but it does mean there will be a severe disconnection, much like in a death.

Again if you know somethings coming when it comes your comfort and that someone was prepared. Take a deep breath look at your family take care of them and trust that this too shall pass. I remember the words of Juliet of Norwich you said all is well all shall be well and all manner of things shall be well. Everything will be all right in the end and if it’s not all right, it’s not the end

I’ll see you soon

  1. Death is a natural part of the cycle of life, and one we shouldn’t be afraid of. That said, it seems to me that death can be a cruel visitor in our lives, bringing pain and shame where none existed before. Perhaps the architects of the universe weren’t thinking when they designed this feature.
