Oh, so sorry Floss. I had a really strong urge to pray for you yesterday (Tuesday), which of course I did, so I had a feeling it wouldn't be long. You continue in my thoughts and prayers.

Serenata said...

My heart aches for you and your family Floss and I cannot fully understand how you must feel. I know in some ways it must be a relief that her pain and suffering is over and I am so glad you were able to be with her and sing to her over these last few days.But that doesn't make the pain of loss any easier. It must be very hard for your Dad as well and I hold him as well as you all in my prayers.

Nina said...

Dear Floss, my heart goes out to you, I´m so sorry. She lived a full beautiful life, she was surrounded by love. She will live forever inside you - and she will always be your mum.
My warmest thoughts for you and your family. Love.

Oh Floss, I am so sorry to hear about your Mum. You have been very lucky to spend lots of time with her over the last few months and I'm sure it has made her illness more bearable having you by her side. You have had some great times with her this year and always and when the pain goes away, those good times are all you will remember. I'll be thinking of you and your family.

Lots of love, Kat xxx

Floss, I am so sorry to hear your news and, like Bluebell, we don't know one another but please accept my heartfelt sympathy. Thank you so very much for taking the time to welcome me as a new blogger when so much else has been going on in your life.

Elizabethd said...

Dearest Floss. I've only just caught up and I wept for you when I read the words no one wants to have to write.
My prayers are with you and your family.

bad penny said...

Oh Flos - my thoughts are with you and your family.

Alison said...

Sincere condolences, Floss.

As someone wrote to me when my Dad died:
"Do not be sad that she has gone
Only be glad she ever was"

Of course you'll be sad, but I hope that your memories of her will sustain you.

I have been following your blog for some months now.
I was living in Carcassonne when I got that phone-call... my Dad to say "Come Home" - I left 2 days later and he died 2 weeks later. I am crying as I write this but I am so grateful to have had those 2 weeks with him (and my brothers).
Your idea of writing your blog so your Mum could be part of your life in France was a brilliant one and I am glad you were able to be with your Mum at this time - this will be a solace in the months and years to come.
I am now nearer the Med but still in the Aude and nearly every day see a bird or a flower or a sunrise and wish I could share it with my Dad.

Floss - My heart is broken and knows your pain. I am extending my love and thoughts to you across the oceans.
How fortunate we both were to spend time with our beloved Parents before they passed away! And for them to know that we were with them too.
I know the pain is still so raw, but how blessed to have so many wonderful memories to cherish..
With warmest condolences, Kali xox
