a funeral

my neighbour of about thirty years or more is being buried tomorrow.  she lost her fight with cancer late last week.  it's going  to be a sad time naturally.  she was like a mum to me after my parents died and my daughter thought of her as a grandma.  she was such a happy character and would walk past on her way to the shops whistling away. on saturdays her tv would be up way too loud and she's be barracking for her favourite team.  she loved her garden and it was always full of colour.  i was often getting little cuttings from her and the violets in my garden came from a cutting of hers when i moved here over ten years ago.  she is survived by her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and will be sadly missed by everyone.  RIP Betty


  1. So sad to lose such a good neighbour.

  2. the service was really nice and personal. we had lunch afterwards and although a very sad day it was somehow uplifting. :)

  3. So sad when a friend passes. But you have her spirit growing with you in your garden. Such a lovely way to remember her.


thanks for visiting. :)
