As a Gentle Reader commented, I have the best readership.
Nana had a good meal on Wednesday, with a good dessert -- always her favourite part -- talked with the staff and other residents, and watched a movie on the telly before going to bed.
Thursday morning, she couldn't be woken up.
She was unresponsive for several days, allowing family to say their goodbyes, and then at 0955 hours on Monday 06DEC2010, Death came quietly and kindly and Nana simply ... slipped away.
We will be laying her next to Granda in the family plot on Saturday.
Again, I thank you, and my family thanks you, for your kind words and thoughts.
