    I can't believe I miss her so much, you would have thought I would have got used to the lack of phone calls but I haven't every day at 6.50 I miss that so much.
    I ache inside and cry every day. I still can't part with her things and clear her house even though I intend to rent it one day but not soon.
    I feel like she's around watching me I don't know why, I want to tell her I love her and I can't.
    I miss her...and her voice asking me what I have done today, all I have done is cry today,

    Thank you barny. I didn't realise how beautiful my Mum was until other people mentioned it, and to think I never told her :(
    She was beautiful on the inside too, so generous to us all and thoughful in every way

    So sorry, Gillybean. I too lost my mum in January and am struggling. I seem to feel her presence but so many times I want to tell her something and she is not there. Quite ridiculous really as I lost her to dementia several years ago. I should be selling her house and again cannot bring myself to do so.

    Your mum was beautiful and in time you will remember the good times. but now it hurts so much. Sending a huge hug, anne

    What lovely photos, your Mum was very beautiful, I feel for you as I lost my Dad in November, I hear him in my head talking to me, I miss him so much.......I know he is no longer suffering with this hellish disease and its not the awful situation Dad was in for the last couple of years of his life it's my real Dad I miss, the one free of Alzheimer's, who always had a smile for me, the kind caring compassionate man that I loved so much and taken away too soon.......he is always with me in my heart as is your Mum in yours xx
