Beautiful, a soft smile on his face, George's body is at peace. Sunlight is streaming into the room.
A vast network of support and love surrounds him now as it did throughout his dying. His strong beliefs that his real journey has only started makes me smile.

Please feel welcome to come and sit.

Gentle Breathe

George died this night at 5:20, his last breathe was gentle. His wishes were honored and his spirit is bright. His body will remain at Maitri for three days.


George continues to change and move toward his death, he is comfortable. Now comatose we are following his breaths with love and admiration.

From the bedside

George is peaceful and has entered the dying process. He is not answering phone calls and is unconsious most of the time. He stopped eating on Monday. He is getting wonderful care and we are at the bedside night and day. Please do not drop by, this is George's wishes. Please do not call Maitri as they are busy with 14 people to care for.

We will let you know when he dies, his body will be here at Maitri for up to three days so that you can come by and sit. There will be six chairs available. Hold him in your heart as surely as he is holding you.

Eileen, Gaetano and Wendy
