Words are not enough to capture the devotion, kindness, thoughtfulness and unselfishness of a mother. Fond memories of encouraging looks, loving eyes and encouraging gestures flood the mind and heart.

An amazing spirit, insatiable reader and artistic mind characterise her deliberate actions and mindful devotion to her children.

Although she has aged she still puts you first, even though she now has only half her body parts she still ignores her pain to focus on you; even though she feels her fragility and walks unsteadily she notices the slightest change in your gait although she shuffles awkwardly.

She keeps moving because that’s all she can do, doesn’t want to stop; doesn’t want to feel like she can’t look after you anymore, still wants to do what she can for you and remembers your favourite biscuit when you visit.
