My beautiful mother, not a bad word did she say of anyone. Everyone who met her said she had a heart of gold, a very soft caring, thoughful loving person. Although she spent all my childhood in and out of hospital she never complained. The highlight of my weekends was when she came out of hospital and despite her weakness she would plan somewhere to take me out.

She would spend ages knitting me cardigans and clothes for my dolls. A wonderful mother, who meant the world to me, left my life when i was 11 years old but have memories of her as though it were yesterday that she was with me. Will never forget her, she was my mom. She is in my thoughts still and always will be.

I will keep her in my heart while the angels look after her . x
