In spite of all my good intentions

I haven't logged in for ages... :oh:

My sister in law died suddenly last month. I had been quite involved with her care, she had motor neurone disease coupled with a type of dementia that can hit some MND sufferers. Anyway, she died of a heart attack while she was abroad. It was shocking, although it saved her from the horrible long slide into total disability that MND causes (it's called Lou Gehrig disease in the US, I think). She was in a wheelchair and could only talk and eat with great difficulty, it would only go downhill from there.

It's taken us a while to get over this. The funeral was a few weeks ago.
