Of your c harity

Please pray for the repose of the soul of my mother, Carole Christine who died at lunchtime today (Tuesday)  following 72 hours of the most utterly appalling suffering I have ever had to witness and experience. 
I think I am in a state of shock because everybody is telling me it hasn't yet properly "hit me": it cannot have, because after over 4 months of making sure all of my routine has fit in with appointments, trips to consultants, clinics, pharmacies, day centres, radiotherapy recovery sessions, Marie Curie, and more importantly with arranging 24 hour support without a day off myself, I'm now becoming anxious that I shall be unable to think of what to worry about next apart from reporting forthcoming events and serving Mass at a good number of our venues which I have been unable to attend. The last sixteen weeks have been exhausting and I am sorry to have been unable to keep things up to date.
