    when i heard Geoff had passed away last week my heart sank as he and Gill had been so close in their journey.
    Today at 1100 ( and Gill was no good at numbers.. 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month ) she quietly slipped away…. nearly 15 years since onset.

    She’d lost speech some time back but we had rebuilt communications with blinking and just this morning she’d confirmed with a blink that she wasn’t in any pain.. she was comfortable, pain free and surrounded by family. then all of a sudden she decided that was enough and let go of the fight.

    to all those of you still out there on the course… run your marathon well and with some smiles, some laughter and lots of love ( and this comes from perhaps places unlooked for like carers who really care ) and you get to complete the marathon with your head up. What more can you ask

    thanks to all those who have been “running” alongside us … we can’t thank you enough
