  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Mom by Spursfan2 on 3 February 2014 9:19am
I didn't get chance to post this yesterday (2nd Feb) as we left early for a day with friends in South Yorkshire, but it would have been my Mom's 100th birthday!

We sadly lost her in 2001, and had 'Always Look on the Bright Side of Life' played at her funeral as it was what she always did!

We had intended to visit Mom (and Dad's) grave at the crem. before we left for Yorkshire and put a couple of plants there, but when I checked the opening times for Sundays I found they didn't open until 10 a.m. - we had planned to leave around 9 a.m. as it is approx. a 2 hour journey each way.

Never mind, we are visiting Mom tomorrow - I am sure she won't mind!

Lovely post SF2. It looks like your mum could have been an honorary palinite.

I love it that you played 'Always Look on the Bright Side of Life' at her funeral!

She was born a few months before the First World War started.

Thank you Ken and Sue.

Yes - we used to tease her that SHE was the cause!!
