RIP Mum

Life changes so quickly.  Only 22 days ago we were celebrating my Mother’s 97th Birthday.  Today at exactly 8am she departed this life while Dot and I were sitting with her.  Since having a flu injection 3 weeks ago she quickly deteriorated.  Spending up to 12 hours at her bedside every night for the last week today was time for her to finally let go. Thanks for everything Mum.

Thinking of you as you adjust to being an orphan. So much to give thanks for - her lifetime and your life and everything else.
May you and she know peace and may she rise in glory.
