It's been a tough year for the Gill family

Forwarded by my mother, from my Uncle Eric, who's lost his wife: "Lauree passed peacefully surrounded by loved ones at 1:30 PM, graceful and beautiful to the last."

Well, that's it then. Auntie Lauree's gone. She had a long hard struggle and she dealt with it with such amazing grace, right up to the end.

It feels so quick, even so. I just saw her at Christmas. She was maybe a little thin, and maybe a little tired, but there was no stopping that over-brimming joy. Only two weeks ago she left the hospital, making the decision to stop fighting it and go in as much comfort and dignity as she could manage.

She had the biggest, brightest smile in the family.

...So it goes.
