My father died of a brain tumour at 69 years old in January of 2016. He was admitted to hospice on a Thursday and died on the Friday of the following week. Nobody really talks about the process of dying and what those who will go on living can expect to see. This is one moment from those 8 days.

Aprill is a freelance management consultant and content writer, a volunteer board member, a parent and a creative writing major at the University of Melbourne.

You can find Aprill on her websiteTwitter, and Instagram.

Aprill Allen’s short story, The Sacrament, is performed by Aprill.

Music in this episode is by Blue Dot Sessions, “Last Lights” and “Sunset on Sandy Isle”.
