As we gathered as a family in room 214, it would be the longest night of the year. Our personal winter solstice was about to unfold.
It wasn't easy saying goodbye. It wasn't easy hearing, "The end is near." We laughed. We cried. We whispered our love. We were longing for reassurance! it never came.
The beautiful strains of "Spirit Wings" lifted our spirits as the hospital clock ticked down our goodbyes.
