my mum

It has been the most difficult of weeks for us as a family.
My wonderful, gentle, funny little mum passed away suddenly
on her 80th birthday last thursday.

We are struggling with the shock of it all and coming to terms with the huge hole she has left in our lives.
I am grateful for the support and love of my family and friends
at this awful time.

Miss me, but let me go

When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom filled room
Why cry for a soul set free

Miss me a little - but not too long
And not with your head bowed low
Remember the love that we once shared
Miss me - but let me go

For this is a journey that we must all take
And each must go alone
It's all a part of the Master's plan
A step on the road to home

When you are lonely, and sick of heart
Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds
Miss me - but let me go

  1. We're so, so sorry to hear about your lovely mum. Such sad news. Just want you to know that we're thinking of you and sending all our love. Wx

  5. So sorry my darling - I can't imagine what you must be going through right now. All our love to you. See you later for a very big hug.

  6. So sad to hear your news - my Dad died in September aged 74 and he would have been 75 on the 24 February. I can empathise with how you must be feeling sending you hugs. I read somewhere just after my Dad died that your heart can't be broken when its filled with love -it helped me so hope it helps you too. XXX

  8. Thank you all for your kind and supportive messages. It has been very difficult to come to terms with the fact we won't see her again.
    We had a wonderful welsh service, sun was shining and we sang Calon Lân, one of my Mum's favourites
    Calon lân yn llawn daioni,
    Tecach yw na'r lili dlos:
    Dim ond calon lân all ganu
    Canu'r dydd a chanu'r nos.
