I am going to miss our “black humour”, Sunday’s and every other day. Wish you could have stayed longer. Mum I will pull myself together, straighten my crown and remember whose daughter I am.

Cherished memories of an inspirational Mum who loved her family with her all.

She always had our back and taught us to have each other’s too.

Always loved, forever missed.

Love David and Danielle.


To my amazing Mum. To take from the Wizard of Oz: unlike Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion, I am, and always will be, in awe of your quick wit and humour, your forgiving heart, and your courage.  You, who had endured so much and complained so little.

To quote Dorothy, there’s no place like home. Mum you were my home.

Forever in my heart and the voice inside my head.

Mum Number 4 here! How do you cram my 60 years and your 87 (nearly) in to just a few lines? Impossible. Just like it is impossible to say how much I love you and will miss you. You left so suddenly, but I understand that you had to leave us. Now at peace, may your God bless you and keep you safe.

Rest now Mum with all the love my heart can hold.

Heather Monica.
