Sadly



Sadly on Monday our lovely Mam passed away in the Hospice.

  Mam went into hospital and we were told she  had just days left to live after being diagnosed with ovarian  cancer. We brought her home she fought for six weeks having many "good" days and many "bad" days but always with a smile on her face.

We laughed and cried and had  lots of special times and made happy memories.

Rather than just letting her body go to waste Mam has kindly donated her body to medical science in the hope that one day there will be a cure for cancer.

A very brave Lady...My Mam  XXX

What a very special lady your mum was to think about how she could fight back at cancer even though she could not be cured herself .. Blessings to you and your family.

I am sorry. My mom has been gone for 10 years now, I still pick up the phone to talk to her. Her memory brings a smile to my face. It is so good you were able to spend time with her. You were a blessing to her.

Sad news. My heart goes out to you - losing your mum is so hard. Take your time, you will never "get over it" nor would you want to as it is our memories that keep our loved ones with us. It will however grow easier to remember the happy times with her and slowly the memories will begin to raise a smile for all she gave rather than tears for all you have lost. Be kind to yourself, I'm sure she would want that. ((((lots of hugs))), xxx
