No-one to talk to ...

Recommended Posts

Thanks everyone for your warm wishes and kind words.

Funeral is on Monday. My autocorrect just tried to change "on Monday" to "onion day" - it must know that I will be shedding a tear or ten that day!!

I'm still waiting for the news to sink in really. Everything happened so quickly at the end, just two days before, Mum was still leading a relatively normal life - well, the new normal. But I mean still walking about, we'd been shopping a few days before with the help of her wheelchair.

Although sudden, I'm relieved it was this way. Mum would have hated to have been bed ridden with an oxygen mask, continuous pain relief through a syringe driver etc. thankfully although this was the case for her last hours with us, she was too confused to understand.

Love and miss her so much!

We met with the minister today to discuss mam's service. Although she wasn't religious, she was very traditional so we opted for a reading from the bible and asked for recommendations.

This was the first one he read. It really touched me and was so appropriate :(

God looked around his garden

And found an empty place,

He then looked down upon the earth

And saw your tired face.

He put his arms around you

And lifted you to rest.

God's garden must be beautiful

He always takes the best.

He knew that you were suffering

He knew you were in pain.

He knew that you would never

Get well on earth again.

He saw the road was getting rough

And the hills were hard to climb.

So he closed your weary eyelids

And whispered, 'Peace be Thine'.

It broke our hearts to lose you

But you didn't go alone,

For part of us went with you

The day God called you home.
