I'm so sorry for your loss Zeus. I'm glad you got to be there, I think that really helps in the long run. It sounds odd to want to be there when someone dies but I was there when Nic passed as well as my Grandpa, it gave me extra peace somehow. We'll be thinking about you.

I held my mom's hand with my head on her arm as she took her last breath. That is a surreal feeling that can't be replicated. But there was an immediate peace and calm that took over the room when she passed. I remember being extremely scared as they took her breathing tube out and we waited for hours with her. I was terrified for those few hours - like couldn't breathe at times. But that peace and calm was a good reminder of how she always made me feel.
