"I first of all want to say that words cannot describe how sad I am to not be there to say my good-byes to Mrs S today, I will in my own way be doing that all the way over in
When I think of Mrs S many things come to mind; Mary-Ann, Guinness, the never forgotten birthday card and Christmas card, generosity, Christmas dinners, mis-hearing things said at the table, stories of weekends away and my third ‘adopted’ Nan.
I am so thankful that I got to see Mrs S this Christmas when I was home, that she got to meet Scott and that she also got to join us on a family lunch. I will miss seeing her again, I will miss making more funny stories to tell and remember BUT, I have so many memories, memories that death cannot take away, memories that I can take with me wherever I go.
To Mary and Kevin, I adore you both so much and I am sorry I am not there with you at this time. Know that Scott and I have been thinking and praying for you. We wish we were not as far away. I know that Mrs S was so blessed to have a daughter and son-in-law just like you, I am sure she was so proud and honoured to have you in her life. We love you both and our thoughts are with you on this day".The day went well from what I have heard, as well as funerals can go. I spoke to my family this morning to hear all about it. It's good to know that now they can move forward, especially my Aunt as it is so hard when you have a funeral looming.
Thanks for all your prayers, they were much appreciated.
