Me: How long have you been watching over me?
Nell: Quite a while. You needed to sleep.
Me: It’s Easter Sunday, isn’t it?
Me: I can’t really say Happy Easter but I do wish Easter love to everyone.
Nell: We all do.
Me: I hope everyone is celebrating with their families and having a wonderful day.
Nell: I’m sure they are in some form or another.
Me: I’m glad Alex’s three children are all together. This is such a difficult time for them.
Nell: It is and they’re being very brave.
Me: At least the sun is shining again which is always a comfort. The fields look beautiful.
Nell: The Welsh corgi choir are dedicating Sunday Songs to Alex.
Me: She loved Easter Sunday.
Nell: We thought you might like a walk in the activity field later. The beach will be far too busy.
Me: Yes, I’m not sure I can deal with lots of people at the moment.
Me: Charlotte sent me some photos of Alex as a child. She was such a happy little girl.
Nell: Precious memories.
Me: I’m not finding today very easy, Nell.
Nell: I know you’re not. It’s okay not to be okay.
Me: I miss her so much. I can’t believe she won’t be arriving soon to share a Sunday roast and tell me all about the things she’s been doing.
Nell; You can still talk to her you know. She’s listening.
Me: Charlotte and I were saying that she seemed so calm in her final moments. We’re hoping this was because our mother came to guide her.
Nell: I’m sure she did. The hospice nurses believe that someone you loved very much comes back to help you on your final journey.
Me: That’s a comforting thought. Thank you.
