What’s in the bowl on the table?
That’s sand and a shell from his favourite beach.
Yeah, and in the bottle is seawater from the beach. He spent a lot of time on that beach and in that water during his life.
Wow, I’m getting goosebumps just hearing about it. Oh hello, Aunty, how are you?
I’m good. Just let me play him something on my phone.
Oh, what are you playing?
Sounds of waves hitting a beach.
From his favourite beach?
No, but most beaches sound pretty similar, right?
Oh right. That’s a really nice thing to do.
The beach and water are where he is heading. He’s going to see his Uncle and they will go sailing together again.
Just like when he was a kid.
Yeah, that’s when his lifelong love of sailing began. He told us today that he’s ready to go. Do you think he will die today?
He might do, but that’s what I said six days ago. I’m not sure, he’s stronger than most humans. But he may have finally let go. No matter what happens we will keep him comfortable.
