Hello gang, well it was only last week that I told you we had celebrated my darling friend & neighbour Huguette’s 99th birthday.
On Saturday morning Huguette’s carer called an ambulance, realising that Huguette had suffered a stroke.
After a couple of days the hospital doctors and Huguette’s god-daughter decided, quite rightly, that it would be better to stop all treatment except Morphine, and let her go. She remained in a deep sleep and died at 6pm yesterday.
For Huguette I am very pleased that it’s over. She, a Roman Catholic, has been praying to die for some time. She had simply had enough.
For myself, well mixed emotions. I will miss her and I’m very glad that I have known her. She was a lovely woman… intellegent, interesting, funny and loving.
I heard last night that she has requested to be cremated wrapped in an Indian sari. That says so much about the unique woman that she was.
