We've been fortunate enough to have had our Mum for a long time- 81 years. In her last years she was definitely not herself, living in a nursing home with a hazy grasp on reality. However, she was there for our childhood, our teenage years, our weddings, her grandchildren. She passed away on Sunday night, and as we prepare for her funeral the memories are constantly surfacing. Farewell, Mum - and thanks for everything.
