Mum died last Tuesday 3rd June 2008. Helen and I have been down in Milton Keynes being with family, visiting Registrars and Funeral Directors and helping Dad with bits and pieces. Which mainly involved terrible tea making skills on my half.
I spent the last week with Mum at Willen Hospice and watched as she slowly went away with exhaustion and pain relief. She had cancer for the last five years and I knew that this day would come soon when the chemo stopped working for her last October. However much you prepare, you cannot fill the numbness that is left. I promised Mum that I would be sad but not angry at her going and believe that in one form or another we will meet again.
