She was 89 and had lived independently and lived life to the full which I can only be thankful for.
No long lingering illness for her, she was even planning her own 90th birthday celebration for later on this year.
I am sad that I didn't get to hold her hand and tell her I loved her but we always live with regrets about what we should have said. If only we knew when the good Lord has decided it is time.
R.I.P mother, I will miss our phone calls, little outing and most of all you x
