Margrethe has done rather well after Henrik passed away; while the situation isnít totally comparable I think itís possible it would be a relief for Liz if Phillip suffers, when he doesnít anymore. He is 99.. I am still finding the silence worrying.
This is very true. A lot of people find it hard when their loved one passes away, but if their loved one is suffering, then it's a relief to know they are now pain-free and at peace. Philip has lived a long life, longer than most. He has been blessed to not only meet his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, but build relationships with them. If he does go, it will be sad, but no one will be able to say gone too soon.
