Mum lost her battle with cancer on Tuesday and sadly died. She had been incredible right up to the end. She had been up and about right up until she collapsed in the morning, and then died at 6 pm that evening in Walgrave hospital. We were at the East of England showground and got the call from Dad that she had been rushed in. It was a boiling hot day and I half hoped that it was heat exhaustion and a few fluids would sort her out, but when we arrived it was clearly much more serious than that and evident that the end was near. It was very quick, which was a blessing for her but quite a shock for us, her family as she almost seemed invincible, and no matter how prepared you think you are for their death, when it actually happens it leaves a huge void. She was an amazing Mum and will be very sadly missed.
