Mum passed away peacefully at home on 28/1/11 at 10.45pm after a very brave battle with cancer, I miss her so so much, she just turned 60 on the 15/1/11 that was her final goal, the first being there for the birth of my daughter Milla on the 18/11/10 and then christmas. We were all there by her side, spiritus care were so wonderful, supplying a hospital bed and being there everyday so she could be as comfortable as possible as her last wish was to die at home. The emptiness, sadness, heaviness and pain inside is almost unbearable, I can't stop thinking about mum, her smiling face, her voice,so many things and just wanting a hug only a mother can give. I am trying to be easy on myself, deep breaths and take a day at a time but my god it is hard. I am so proud to have had such a beautiful, wonderful and amazing mum... I love you xxx

I am sorry for not posting earlier. I agree with Rod, it's not easy but yes we do keep a part of them within ourselves which is a comfort down the road. Don't expect too much of yourself and let yourself grieve properly. cratyone

I can't believe it is almost a year since mum passed and I'm about to face my first christmas without her beautiful smiling face. Christmas was mums favourite time of year which is why I am struggling so much, even with lead up to it, My oldest son who is 4 keeps asking why mummy is crying so much, he hugs me and says "Is it because nanny is in heaven?" I say "yes, cause I miss her so much" I am told That it will get easier but boy! it's taking time. Love you mum.... xxx Merry Christmas to everyone and your loved ones

I cannot begin to imagine what it must be like, just know that she will never be too far away from you in spirit. May you & your family have a very blessed Christmas. With Hugs Alison
