I don't know why Bernie's story has got to me more than most; it just has. I don't want to give her 'sympathy', just a big rush of love and good wishes. Like I said earlier in the thread, I hope someone is making her laugh. It seems her family have gathered around her and I hope, on her good days, they're having a really good reminisce and catch-up. Coleen did well to speak as she did in the interview because she knew Bernie wouldn't have wanted her getting upset. She was honest but put forward the 'positives'. Nobody has any illusions about how gravely ill she is but I hope the time they're all having together is immeasurably meaningful and poignant.
If only for a miracle, eh?
