It is so many years since I have been able to say those words.  My mum died in 1985 age 56.  I love her so much and miss her terribly.  There have been many times over the years, difficult times, when I would have loved to have turned to my mum for help and advice.  This weekend has been difficult for me and I have shed a few tears, thinking back to those wonderful days when I had my parents to share my life with.  My dearest mum has missed out on so many things.  She never got to meet all her grandchildren and her great grandchildren.  I would have loved Amy, my youngest daughter, to have known her.  Yesterday would have been her 80th birthday.  Happy Birthday Mum, I love you.
