Mum made her final journey yesterday. Her funeral went well and the sun shone for her. The family came from Wiltshire, Gloucestershire,Humberside,Essex and mum would have been proud. We had lots of stories to exchange of pre dementia days....which to be honest I thought would never come back.....but they have....and although it makes me sad to think of happy times I'm so pleased they're there. My 2 dear aunts were also affected by this dreadful disease but the good and happy memories are so much stronger than the bad ones.I look upon this as a precious victory.... I laughed and cried with my cousins. We can imagine the sisters reunited and happy and oh how that made us smile!! I visited mum at the chapel of rest yesterday......and I knew she had left her battle- weary body behind.....her spirit is free... She is reunited with Dad and her loving family and her prize for battling as long as she could is peace. Today I feel very sad but I will never forget her courage . I will never forget her. Her courage and determination makes me strong I am so very proud of her.
