My mother's sister Jean died just a few hours ago. She was 85, and she had Alzheimer's.
She had been hospitalised last week after she fell out of bed at the care facility where she had resided for the last five years.

2. They're sorry for any pain they caused.

The doctors asked what I wished them to do – resuscitate? Use a ventilator? Let her go? I was at the center of what felt like an approaching storm – one I knew I could not avoid.
It was then that I saw her coming toward me with open arms; and when I did, I knew in an instant that this was no ordinary moment…
