  • So sorry to hear your sad news, I lost my Mum 6th Sept after sitting by her bedside for 6 days. I talked to her lots during this time and stroked her hair, I'd like to think she could hear me and her beloved Grand Daughters. She slipped away peacefully without any pain or discomfort. My thoughts are with you and your family at this incredibly heartbreaking time.

    Hugs

  • Hi MaddyS,

    Thank you for checking on me :) am taking one day at a time, some good some bad but trying my best. Six weeks yesterday, feels like forever. We talk about him a lot in the house, me my brother and mum, and that gives us some closeness to him and we try and think of all the funny and silly things he used to do. Have not felt strong enough to sit and read all the many condolence cards yet but we look through photos of dad everyday. My heart feels very heavy and we are missing him terribly but he is free of PSP. Hope you are well? Sending love to you and yours xxx
