    Difficult conversation. Earl did a good job.

    Luckily I was automatically out of town when my maternal grandfather passed away (I live in Washington and he lived in Arizona).

    I watched my father die in the hospital. It’s something
    a person never forgets.

    Where I live it’s still common for people to die at home. If it looks like the end is coming, the hospital will often discharge the patient if possible so they can do just that. They still ring the passing bell, too.

    @ Afficionado & Llewelyn: As have I. It was the reverse of Orinoco’s way of life, though. Dad was home until almost the end then moved to a rehab/nursing center (not a hospital). They did a great job of making him comfortable.

    I recall that when I was a kid, I hated being left alone with my eighty something grandpa, because I was afraid he’d die on me.

    I was able to see my mother in a hospice about 6 hours before she died back in 2010. It was expected but didn’t cushion it much.

    I want to die in my sleep, like my grandpa; not screaming and crying like the other five people in the car he was driving down the highway.

    So sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine going through something like that.
