thursday 19042007



my mum died 2 years ago today.

she had a heart attack while she was on dialysis

if she had lived, it was looking likely that she would have had one or both of her feet amputated, and part of one of her legs.

It is possible that she might have deliberately instigated her death. One of her life long best friends told me that mum had talked with her about ending her life.

when I think about my mum, one of my fondest recent memories that comes immediately to mind, is pushing her around tesco supermarket in her wheelchair while she shoplifted various items of makeup.

Hi Russell
This posting instigated tears in the eyes of this crusty old visitor. A unique and very moving eulogy.
And...I laughed out loud when I read the bit about the tesco heist.
