"Mum spent her last 6 days at St Giles Hospice in Whittington, which is just outside Lichfield. They were so wonderful to her and treated her so well. Jen, myself and my mom had been to see the hospice and she was very impressed with it and said she would be happy to spend her last days there. We were lucky enough to get her in however she wasn't really conscious while she was there as she slept continuously the first few days before lapsing into a semi unconscious state with very short periods of lucidity. Fortunately on the Sunday, before she died she came awake and I was able to tell her I loved her and she smiled at me and whispered "I know" and shut her eyes again and those were the last words I spoke to her. She died very peacefully on Monday the 8th of October at 9.30 in the morning". JACQUIE WITTSTOCK.
