My angel, my best friend, my mum.....

by Debbie

I lost my mum on 25th Jan 2011. She had bile duct cancer but caught a bug which got into her blood stream and shut down her organs. She was so brave, I can still see the look on her face now, she knew she would be leaving us and she fought so hard but she eventually died peacefully and looked so beautiful and at peace. At first I was shell shocked and what with helping dad with the funeral never really grieved properly. The rest of 2011 I shut it out as thinking about it caused me too much pain. This year 2012 has been the hardest. My mum was my everything, I have a supportive husband and family but my mum just got me, we would laugh together, cry together, go shopping, chat on the phone, she was my best friend. She always looked for the best in everything and everyone. I know she would hate to see me so down and upset, all she ever wanted for me was to be happy. But how can I be happy without her. She was the one that was always there for me, come rain or shine and even though I have great friends and family most of the time I feel so alone. I am determined to not let her down, to try and make the most of my life and make more memories, especially as my dad is still grieving and needs me. So mum if you can hear me, stop worrying, cos I know you will be, we all just miss you. The birthday we shared is on the 26th and I will celebrate it for both of us. So Happy Birthday mum, I love you so much.
