Mum's Gone

Hi everyone,

Please dont think I am ignoring all you people who have sent me emails and messages re Phuket and mum over the last 22 days, I will get to them eventually.

My mum had a bleed on the brain on the 1st October and was only given a couple of days to live.

She bravely fought it for 17 days but sadly went to sleep forever last Wednesday with all her girls around her. Her funeral is today.

I am going to Brisbane tomorrow to spend time with Angie, my sister so will get back to you all soon.

I am so sorry for your loss. Losing a parent can never be an easy thing but at least now, she has moved on to a more peaceful place.

My thoughts are with you and your family.

Tiff emailed me to tell me the news.

My deepest sympathies and all my love goes to you and the family tonight.

Your Mum is with the angels, and she is with you, in every step you take.

Take whatever time you need.

She will be proud, always, to have a daughter such as you.

All my love,

Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family at this sad time. I know how incredibly hard it is to lose a parent.

She certainly showed them Doctors though didn't she. She wasn't going anywhere until she was good and ready. I wonder if this stubborn streak runs through the family?

The love and support from your family and friends will help get you through this. Hold on tight to all of your precious memories of Mum, and celebrate her life with Angie, tomorrow and always..

You have a very beautiful angel travelling with you now.

Love and huggs
