It's taken me a while to get back onto my blog - I'm so sorry!

A couple of weeks ago my in-laws had planned a weekend visit - a little getaway to the seaside from their city surroundings.  The night before they were due to stay, we received a phone call to say my darling mother-in-law, Kathleen, was poorly and had been taken to hospital.  For 9 days we visited the hospital. She finally slipped into a coma and passed away, with all her adoring family by her side.

Kate was the most gentle, kind and generous lady - it was an honour to know and love her.  Married to her darling Louis for almost 61 years - they were the stereotypical teenage sweethearts - together for a grand total of 67 years - how amazing is that!  Her family was so precious to her - 6 children, 15 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren!!  My hubs had a wonderfully close relationship with his Mum and can hardly comprehend that she is no longer with us.  Louis, of course, is bereft without his sweetheart - we can only support him and the rest of the family.  I just had to share a photo of this wonderful lady and say one last time - we love and miss you - your precious spirit will live on in our memories - goodnight Kate.


Thank you for allowing me to share.
