A few of you may have met my mum over time, she sadly died a few weeks ago.

A truly beautiful tribute Graz, having lost my own Mother a while ago I have to confess reading your story brought tears to my eyes.
I am very sorry for your loss, and hope you will take comfort from wonderful memories you have of a lovely lady.

With best regards

Mike

My condolences to you. Sounds like she was quite a good mom. Glad that her pasting was not a struggle, as sometimes occurs.

Best always,
Z

what a magnificent lucid and eloquent tribute...I've read this several times and the insight you offer into the life of this lady and your relationship is remarkable.

The pictures are stunning, and it's interesting to see the kids growing in them, but particularly liked the one with Dorrie and Jim as they look so happy. Absolutely loved the transformation to the nursing home you describe, with the fifties makeover...brilliant!

Isn't it strange the bond that often forms between grandparents and grandchildren...the kids seem to have a gentle respect and patience for the old timers that is different to that for their parents.

My mum is only 70 and is beginning to have problems with short-term memory, so your article has been of practical use to me too.

If only other ageing parents had sons like you! All the very best from the UK

Please accept my deepest condolences on the passing of your Mum. What a lovely tribute, and beautiful family. Your girls are growing so fast, and in their eyes I see a reflection of both parents. And the circle of life continues...

Inspiration for a DK-1 speaker perhaps?

Graz,

First time back in many months (sorry about that...), so let me take this opportunity to offer my sincerest condolences on the passing of your mother. I lost mine back in 2006, and I miss her to this day.

Sincerely,

Matt Carnicelli

Graz, Esme & Juniors
My deepest sympathies and prayers are with you all. I know that the last period with your mum has not been easy given her declining health. I'll have to give you a call.
