I wanted to thank you all on behalf of myself and our daughters for taking the time to send a message, either on the forum or privately....they were all greatly appreciated and my daughters looked at each one with me.

Christina is being cremated at 1pm on the 21st and we have family coming over from the States and Eire.

We had always decided that half of her ashes will be taken (at a later date) to Ireland to go on her 'family' grave. The other half will be kept to mix with mine when the times comes.

I remember waking up the morning after the night before and for that split second you forget, then reality hits again.

As much as we all miss Christina we are thankful that her pain and suffering have come to an end - Christina like all you ladies, earnt the highest respect and admiration in the way you all face this disease with every emotion available to you.

I will pop in and out of this site over time, but wanted to thank you all and took the easy way out by doing a group post rather than individually.

From the bottom our our hearts....thank you for caring about Christina.

Laurence & the girls. xxxx

  • Thank you, Laurence, for letting us know how things are going for you, and your arrangements. I think you and Christina have planned a very nice way of dealing with her ashes. Most touching. Paul and I have planned that when each our times come, we will share the same grave. It gives a little bit of comfort somehow. We'll be thinking of you all at 1 pm on the 21st.

    Thank you, too, for the helpful replies and support you have offered on the site, over time.

    Take care, cling on to your happy memories, best wishes to you and all your family, Solange
