Bob

10.00am

At 8.40am Mother called me to say that Bob has passed away. The Nursing home called her last night.

Bob's life was effectively over anyway as he was confined to bed and on an oxygen machine 24x7. When I saw him last week he said he was very unhappy at the prospect of spending the rest of his life in those circumstances.

We are glad his suffering has ended.

1.00pm

After calling the nursing home and speaking to Mother, I arranged an appointment at a funeral home at 11am. I called one at Chatswood but was diverted to their branch at Warrawee because the Chatswood office is closed today.

I picked Mother up at 10.30am and we drove up to Warrawee. On the way there Mother told me some more details about what happened. Apparently Bob had an episode of breathlessness. He recovered from that and asked for a beer. The staff gave him something to drink and then he just slipped into a coma and died soon after.

It turns out that the building housing the funeral home (Simplicity Funerals) is the place that used to be the Sea Chef restaurant. I remember doing a gig there with my band in about 1985.

We made all the arrangements with Angela, the woman I had spoken to on the phone. The funeral will be on Friday at 10.15am and Northern Suburbs Crematorium. A notice will be in Wednesday's SMH.

After that we went to the Coonanbarra cafe at Waroonga and had lunch.

Now I have to inform the Department of Verterans' Affairs, the bank etc. And as I am the executor of his will, I'll have to see the solicitor at Lane Cove who has the original in his files.

6pm

I've made an appointment to see our solicitor on Wednesday.

In the afternoon I drove over to Collaroy. First I went to the chemist shop to pay Bob's pharmacy bill, and then to the nursing home to pick up Bob's belongings. It amounted to two large plastic bags of stuff. They also gave me a photo they had taken a few days ago...

And here is Bob and his young nephew (me) some time around 1964...
