Just letting you know ( because you are my best friends that I have never met), that my lovely mum Christine lost her battle against liver cancer this morning. You have all been super supportive and understanding and I really appreciate that. I was lucky enough to be with her and though it breaks my hear to say goodbye,I know that she is now at peace and no longer in pain xxx

  • I am so sorry to hear this and I feel really bad for you and your family. Take your time to grieve and to remember. I wish you well over this difficult period x

  • Oh! I'm so sorry for your loss. Loosing your mum is very heartbreaking. You're bringing such a special tribute to her on this mother's day by saying "my lovely mum Christine". I can hear you love her very much and really suffered for her. I will think of you in this coming week.

  • Hi Jingle_berry

    I am so sorry to hear your mum lost her battle with cancer this morning. Sending big (((((hugs)))))) to you and glad you got to be with her. We are all here for you. xx

  • Jingle_berry I am so sad for you and your dreadful loss. Mums are such special people.

    You are right to think that she is in a much better place now, no more pain or anguish, just peace and light.

    I will remember your family in my prayers tonight of that doesn't offend you.

    Take good care of yourself and please give yourself permission to grieve, it is so important.

    Take care


  • I know I've not spoken to you before, but I wanted to say I am sorry to hear of your loss.

  • I am very sorry to hear your sad news Jingle_berry I had not appreciated how little time you had left with your Mum.

    Always here for you, whatever you have to deal with. Just remember to be kind to yourself and take time to look after yourself.

  • I'm so sorry for your loss.My mum passed away before I could reach her bedside.I never got to say goodbye.My thoughts are with you.xx

  • Sincere condolences Jingle_berry ❀️

    I've been there and know all too well how you must be feeling.

    Big hugs xx

  • Oh Jingle_berry im so sorry to hear of your loss. I don't think we've spoken much if at all but felt I needed to send some love.

    I lost my dad when he was 54 to liver cancer some years ago so understand what you will have gone through to some extent. She is at peace now. Rest and allow yourself & your family to grieve. It is so nice that you were with her. Your mum will have appreciated it I'm sure.

    I know it's not for everyone but my dads funeral director got a specialist in to take some of the sickness colouring out of his face. We agreed as thought my gran was going to visit. She didn't so my mum and I went. It was a bit odd but he looked much better than he had for so long.

    I found sunglasses helped at the funeral as I couldn't give anyone eye contact for months afterwards.

    I hope I haven't overstepped the mark with the above. Just trying to be helpful x

    Again so sorry for your loss.


  • Thank you 😘

  • Jingle_berry I have sent you a PM as I couldn't get on this post, my thought are with you.xx

  • Sorry to hear if your mums death, I never had suffering with my parents, you know she is better off. It's tough for you, be kind to yourself, I hope you nurture and let the grief come as neeeded

  • Thinking of you . Sorry for your loss Jingle berry. No more suffering and peace for your mother now. Lovely that you were with her at the end. You have your lovely memories and they will never go.

  • I am so sorry to hear of your loss - my thoughts are with you and your family

    Make sure you take care of yourself and give yourself some 'Me' time - Grief affects people in different ways

    Loads of love and cyber hugs to you and your family x x

  • So sorry you have lost your mum. I know exactly how you feel as I lost my beloved mum and both sisters to that cruel illness. I know it seems impossible now but it is true that time heals and you will garner such comfort from your memories of happier times. Take care πŸ’πŸ’

  • I am so sorry for your loss, I haven't messaged you before but wanted to send you my love. My thoughts are with you and your family at this very sad time, your mom is out of pain now and in peace, please take comfort that she's no longer suffering and remember the happy times you both had together.

    Look after yourself, much love and hugs to you πŸ’

  • My thoughts are with you ❀️ I am sure your mum would have been happy you were with her and now she can feel pain free and watch over you, be with you still in your heart. Take all the happy memories and comfort they bring, grief has no healing time, take each day as it comes, big hugs from the forum πŸ’β€οΈπŸ’

  • So sorry Jingle_berry . You've clearly been a great support to your mother and have helped her manage this last part of her life.

    It's so hard watching someone you love struggle with illness, you must be exhausted now.

    You'll have loads to do now - all the paperwork and organising - so don't forget to look after yourself too.

    Hugs to you and your family.

  • Very sad to hear of your loss Jingle_berry - losing your mother is such a painful event, but how wonderful that you were there with her right up to the end. Be gentle with yourself for a while - time does help heal, but slowly πŸ’

  • So very sorry for your loss x

  • Oh Jb, I'm so sorry! I know that this is something that you've been expecting for some time now, but that doesn't make it any less shocking.

    Be comforted from the fact that you were able to spend time with her at the end and say your goodbyes and that she knew just how much you loved her.

    Rest in peace, Christine, your wonderful nature, lives on in your daughter. xx

  • Sorry for your terrible loss Deepest condolences 😒😒😒

  • I lost a mother like figure the day after mother's day and I am going through hell god bless us both xxx

  • I'm overwhelmed by your love and support ( as indeed my mum would be). Thank you all so much ❀️❀️😘😘😘

  • So sorry to read your sad news x x

  • So sorry for your loss take care xx

  • Heartfelt condolences on the loss of your mom. Even tho you know she is now at rest, it doesn't lessen your grief and loss. Time will help but in the meanwhile allow yourself to grieve. I too have lost my mom but I love my memories and even tho it took a long time, I can now talk about her without that awful feeling of loss. You are in my thoughts. Xxx

  • Peace be with you and your beloved mother

  • As ever, this forum and its wonderful members have given me the most enormous hug and support.

    Thank you all for your kind words. I can't quite believe that I'm not going to see my mum again, but I am really lucky that we had such a great relationship and already happy memories are peeping through. I've added one of my favourite photos of us together at the beginning of my post - couldn't figure out how to do it anywhere else!!!

    Lots of love to you all πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜‰
