  7. My deepest sympathy Wilma. You obviously have many happy memories to help you through this difficult time. I know what you mean when you catch yourself thinking 'I must tell mum about ...' I still do that occasionally though it is over 15 years since my mum departed this life. Gone but never forgotten.
