Hi Geraldine.

I am so deeply saddened that you have had to experience this great loss, something no one should ever have to experience, but sadly do.

I tried my absolute best to keep mum here and safe with me, my siblings and the rest of the family and it does still hurt me so very much to know she’s not here anymore (especially with Christmas, her birthday and mother’s day approaching after she passed) 

Your husband would be incredibly proud of how hard you cared, and you should always be very proud of how hard fought. 

I am always here to support you!

sending love xx
