After a long illness my mother passed away peacefully early on Wednesday 15th October 2008.
During the last year of her life she was tormented by a number of issues both physical and psychological. Since my dad passed away (three years to the month) she missed him intensely and never really managed to get over his loss. Mam has had a huge impact on my live and I will miss her greatly as the space she occupied is now empty apart from the lasting memories of the good times we shared. In the photo above you can see her as the person she wanted to be, full of life and “the heart and soul of the party”. Sadly at the end she was little more than a shadow of this person.
I know that she has now found a lasting peace and that she is now in the presence of God the Eternal Comforter.
