My aunt Beth died this morning at the hospital in Thisted from cancer in her bones and lungs. It wasn't a surprise, the cancer was bad enough, and about 5 days ago she caught pneumonia and that was it, there was no way to recover from that.
Her husband Jens and her two sisters were at her side the last days. She didn't seem to suffer (morphine is a great thing), her body just gave up the fight.
I feel mostly relieved, having a loved one suffer like Beth did is a terrible thing, especially when there's no reason to believe she can recover. I just wish I could have seen her one last time, but that was not to be.
Beth will be missed.
