On 19th October 2011, my mum passed away. She had been knocked down while out walking the dog. My dad went up to see her but he knew that she was gone. The dog however was fine. I was absolutely devastated and my brother was angry. Relations and friends were saddened by the loss of my mum and couldn’t believe that this had happened to such a kind and caring person. A great amount of people supported us through this tough time and with their help my mum got a truly wonderful send off and everyone was able to say goodbye in their own special way. My mum was 56 years old. It was really hard on my 21st birthday which was on 12th April this year as we share the same birthday so my mum would of been 57 this on the same date. It's still really hard without her and I still remember that night so well. It was dark and raining. It was put down down an accidental death. But I feel like it wasn't her time to go.
