passing

have you even noticed how there are many many ways of saying someone has died. Why is that? Are we all so afraid of it? I guess so. Anyway, recently Neil's dad died. He had been sick for almost as long as I have known him, and the very ill the last 2 or 3 years, he had been in care. The last few months were a bit yuk, he could hardly talk, his movement had dramatically reduced and he lost many man kilos.
It's hard to tell people you are relieved someone has died.

yes, it does seem like a situation to be glad he's not suffering anymore.
My condolences and sympathy to Neil

It's sad, but it's for the best. Doesn't make it any easier.
