    My colleague of a decade passed away this morning at home. I was informed on the ward at 4 pm this evening. She was 60 years old..... went to sleep after watching TV with her daughter and never woke.

    To think the last conversation I had with you was you congratulating me on passing my course followed by a hug. ‘I’ll see you Monday morning’ you said. Remind me to do that thing. It will be Monday morning tomorrow......but you won’t be there. It feels like a nightmare that I cannot wake up from.
    Could just about hold myself together to inform staff but even that was hard enough.
    I don’t know how to help them, I don’t know what to say.

    It’s hard to believe you are gone
    There were no goodbyes or endings.
    Just a huge hole amongst your colleagues.
    Who have a head full of never ending questions.

    Until we meet again...... :(

    What a shock, so sad.
    I lost 2 colleagues suddenly last year, so hard to understand and accept. One of them was a good friend.
    Bless you.xx Thought for all she left behind , colleagues , friends and family.

    So sad :( I’m sorry for the loss of your friend; it must be hard to come to terms with, losing them so suddenly. Hopefully time will bring some comfort, and you can cherish that the last conversation was a happy one, and that she went peacefully in her sleep.

    I'm so sorry, it must been such a shock for you, but at least didn't suffer and left the world peacefully.

    So sorry to hear about your friend and colleague. Her poor daughter must be so shocked and devastated. Hopefully when you are all over the shock you can plan something lovely as a memorial.
