Well thank heavens I went to dentist on Thursday -It was a grim enough day without a toothache. My mother died early on Friday morning. She was a few days short of 93 and had lived a full rich life, and was active - well close to hyperactive - right until she went to hospital. I am just so grateful that it was fairly quick. She was begining to get rather vicariously excited about our mad island adventure, and was relieved that we were going. I'm glad she knew and sad that she won't be around for me to tell about it.
I loved her very much and will miss her terribly.
