Truth Teller Has Crossed into the Summerlands

Truth Teller has passed into the summerlands.
After the meeting with hospice/palliative care, Priestess made the decision to withdrawal all the tubes and ties to machines. Without such paraphernalia in the way, she was able to crawl into the bed and hold her husband until he breathed his last.

Friends are notified and coming. We shall step into that sacred space of death and honor the man we knew. Amazing grace will be played on bagpipes. Songs will be song. Stories will be told. The Christian funeral this Sunday will be followed by a pagan celebration of his life near Samhain.

  1. Given that he is now reunited with Butterfly, his step daughter...I find that image to be heartbreakingly appropriate.
