A beautiful farewell

It’s been an eventful few days.

On Sunday, 13 February, Mum took her last breath. My wife Marie and I were privileged to spend her last hours with her.

Since roughly 2020, Mum hasn’t been able to speak coherently, or even in recent months keep her eyes open. But on Saturday night, as Marie and I sang, Mum’s eyes opened and she looked straight at us. It was a beautiful moment of farewell.

Last Wednesday, we had a very special send-off for Mum. I am sure she would have loved it.

I am truly grateful at the outpouring of love and affection from those who knew Mum, and even those who only knew Mum through myself and Marie.

Thank you, Mum, for who you are, and how you loved.
