I am going away until Sunday, for on Wednesday it will be my stepmum’s, Judy, cremation and a thanksgiving service for her life.
My family and friends of Dad and Judy have been very devastated by their deaths, for they were loved by so many.
Their goodness and respect for others, including self-respect, is deep inside me and my brother and sister.
We are very proud to carry that forward.
Their courage in the last eight years, when they were both so ill was amazing.
What was so inspiring was even when they were in pain or very scared, they both lived life to the full, and try to put joy into the world.
I miss them deeply – but they are in my heart.
I will be back on Sunday – please think my family.
