  1. Oh, Björn, you have my deepest sympathy. I remember the journey to visit my mother on her deathbed, also in the rain. An umbrella would make no difference. I’m thinking of you.

  2. Condolences, Bjorn. This is not a day that anyone wants to have to live through, but somehow we do. Lots of love to you.

  3. My condolences, Bjorn. I am glad you’ve had the chance to say a proper goodbye before the end. But like your poem suggests, this is the kind of end we can be ready for. I will keep you in my thoughts. My her spirit be at peace.

  4. Bjorn, I am so sorry. One is never ready for that goodbye. My thoughts are with you. For her – release into the world of spirit, after her long journey. May she fly free and joyously.

  5. So sorry Bjorn. I lost my own mother a year and a half ago, and she is like a phantom limb: I am always reaching for her.

    May you make it through with persistence, and with poetry.

  6. Difficult though you know as you say, you can never really be prepared, and each person has there own response and circumstance, I appreciate how you are using narrative to bring it to life. There’s something about naming it publicly that is so important.
