My Mum

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUM, I miss you.


 In honour of my Mum who passed away suddenly last night (8th December).
It would have been her 91st birthday today.
This picture was taken just 6 months ago. She was always laughing.

Oh Vivienne.....my deepest sympathies to you and your family (((hugs)))

I just loved reading about your going out with her to do Christmas shopping etc. She looks fabulous in this picture - what a great smile. May your heart be warmed by fond memories and may those around you bless you with their love and support. My prayers will be with you.

Hi My name is Mary and I was said...

OMG.. 1st how sorry I am. I am one of the lucky ones out there that knows the love between a mom and daughter. 2nd what a beautiful woman and you ARE so lucky. I don't believe in "was" she will forever be right there with you. I just asked my mother how old did she think she is.. she said not over 65-70 You have great genes. Stay strong. My prayers are with you.

Trying to explain sympathy in a foreign language is even more difficult than in one's own. Though your loss is hard to bear, you have the blessing to know that she did have such a long life, lasting good health, you beside her and in the end no suffering. I am with you in my thoughts and prayers.
