Thank you for all your prayers for a happy death for my father-in-law, Alan. He arrived back at the care home yesterday evening. The staff made him comfortable and then brought him something to eat. One of the carers started to feed him which really annoyed him. He insisted he could feed himself and he did. He swallowed three spoonfuls and as he raised the fourth to his mouth, he died. Just like that. No pain, no fuss, no mess, no waiting.
