I miss you today and everyday...

21st January 1920 - 19 March 2012

Such a beautiful sunny day for your birthday after all the snowfall. I miss you so much my lovely mother. 

Looking through old photos I found this one and I am amazed to realise that you were 74 when it was taken in Gray's Inn on the day of my Call to the Bar as a mature graduate. You were always so elegant even during your later days when struggling with the bewildering effects of the illness that finally overwhelmed you and us.

  2. I know exactly how you feel.
    Was your dear mum really 74 when that photo was taken, she looks so much younger.
