    I am in need of a big hug, my mum, aged 88 died this evening at around 8pm. I am off to London tomorrow to see her. I am devastated that I couldn't be with her when she passed. Sorry just needed share this with my diabetic family. I will not be on line for a couple of weeks, but I will be back when things have settled down. Take care everyone, speak soon.

    Marilyn (((((((HUG'S))))))) for you .

    Love and thoughts to you with this experience .
    Take heart, though you couldnt be there in person .
    She was your mum and knew you loved her ...

    Go easy on yourself , you're bound to feel quite fragile .
    We understand you will need to do other things for now.

    Thank you all so much for your hugs and best wishes. I am still feeling a bit numb at the moment, it hasn't quite sunk in yet. I am so grateful to have you all there in my time of grief. I treasure your friendship, you are all such lovely caring people, I really feel that I have a wonderful extended family. I wish that I could give you all a proper hug instead of a virtual one.

    In the meantime take care all of you and thank you all once again for your kind words, Speak to you soon.

    Lots of Love and big hugs from me

    Marilyn xx (((((((Hugs)))))

    Even when you are expecting it, it's still a shock when it happens. Sorry for your loss and I wish you well.

    Thank you @jack412 for your good wishes, you are right, it is still a shock even when expected. She had a fall this morning and was taken to A&E they found a blood clot and tried to save her, by sending her for an angiogram but she she died durng the procedure she was just too weak. I live a 100 miles away, so I was unable to get there in time to say goodbuy, which is really devestating.

    However, I really appreciate all the good wishes I have received from everyone.

    Big hug Jack

    Marilyn

    It's of no comfort to you now. But later it may help. I'm sure your mum is happy with the way she went. That's as good as going in your sleep with a heart attack

    Mazzer so sorry to hear your news. I agree with all jack412 has said. I am convinced my own Mum didn't want me to be with her when she died as she didn't want me to be even more upset. Your Mum would have known you were on your way and been comforted by that. You don't need to be with her to say Goodbye.

    Big hugs and love,
    Take care
    Suzanne
