I realised recently that I had only posted this on the Facebook page. When I went to do it on here I broke the blog. I apologise.
There is never a good time to write a post like this. However, I wanted to get it done before the new year as I need this for my healing and to be in a position to move forward.
As you are very well aware this page has been neglected. Partly because I started studying at the start of 2015 but mostly because in August of 2015 Judith (my mum), the other half of this blog was diagnosed with bowel cancer.
Sadly, on the 30th of May 2016, aged 63, Judith passed away. It was a relatively short battle with the disease.
This has been one of the hardest posts that I have had to write. It has been written for a while but between my heavy study load, just getting through the day with everyone in one piece and grieving I could not bring myself to post until now.
I will update mum’s profile on our blog with further details when I get a little further into the grieving process.
I wish everyone a happy New Year and I hope that 2017 brings you all much peace, love, happiness and good health.
There is a permanent memorial page if anyone would like to leave any messages.
