  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Mom by Spursfan on 30 June 2010 7:30pm
Well, it is 9 years to the day since my Mom passed away. She was 87.

She was a lovely lady who retained her sense of humour right to the end - always had a smile on her face and would easily get the giggles (like when we took some jokey things, that made (*cough*) 'rude noises', in to show her at the nursing home on what turned out to be her last Xmas Day). And her skin was just gorgeous, as she had never worn make-up.

And as I've said before on here, we had 'Always Look on the Bright Side of Life' played at her funeral as it summed her up, really.

Many blessings to your mom, ((Anne)).
Based on your musical selection, that's one service I regret missing.

It was my husband who chose it, with my agreement, Fran - I thnk it says a lot about his relationship with his mother in law!! They loved each other dearly thank goodness - he would call her 'The Old Git' (in a jokey way of course!) and she would laugh.

Sometimes people would look a bit funny at him when Mom said 'he calls me the old git you know' but she loved him calling it her!! She knew he was joking you see and it was a term of endearment!!
