Tracey, you have been an absolute diamond! Myself and my brother found it so comforting to be able to sit with you (and have our lunch) whilst talking everything through and it was all made that little bit easier because of the relationship you had with Mum through all of life’s troubles that were thrown our way as a family.  Thank you to you for making such a devastating event so much more bearable with your compassion, deducation and sheer beautiful personality xx
