    Mum at peace now

    Hello to my friends on TP. Mum stopped eating and drinking on Thursday last week so I knew that time would be short for my lovely mum. I received a call at 9.30pm on Sunday to say she had gone down hill and it would be best if I could get closer to home as I was away on a few days break. I...
