Our First Lady

and my Lovely Mum

Veda Ann
22 April 1924 to 24 September 2011

I haven't had the heart to be blogging recently  - my last post was full of excitement for visiting my WP's at my Lovely Mum's new "home".  Sadly this visit started earlier than expected and was for the purpose of waiting for an ambulance to return Mum to the hospital which she was discharged from just the day before. 

Mum is terribly missed by our Wonderful Dad, us 11 children together with our spouses/partners, 21 grandchildren some with spouses/partners, 9 great grandchildren and all those who have had the privilege of knowing her.

We are so grateful for all the lovely cards, messages, kind thoughts and prayers sent to our family.

A memorable message from one of the cards Dad received:
"Kindness is a word that the deaf can hear and the blind can see - and Veda had this in abundance for anyone she met"

We are all very fortunate to have had this incredibly special lady in our lives.

A messsage from Dad to Mum, written from his heart almost 70 years ago.
Whereso'er I am, below or else above you,
Whereso'er you are my heart shall always love you.
Thank you for reading.
