We buried my Mum the day before yesterday, she died just short of 103. Mum has been an extraordinary woman. Her indomitable spirit, rooted in a challenging and difficult childhood, tempered with a conscious encounter with God at the early age of eight has made her a highly significant other to many, from her first 30 years in Wimbledon, 10 in Stony Stratford, 58 in Hemel Hempstead and the last 5 in Silverdale and Arnside. We celebrated her life and gave her a good send off at South Hill Church Hemel Hempstead before burying her alongside my Dad in the local cemetery. There were some moving tributes, and many have asked for a record of the poetic tribute given by my son Chris. For those her knew her it encapsulates something of her remarkable personality. For those who didn’t it may resonate as a beautiful summation of a particular kind of lady!
