Hi all

Have just come back from my godmother's funeral and feeling a bit raw from all the emotional stuff. Just feeling the need to share some memories of a great lady with all the people I feel have become the friends I "see" on a daily basis.

My aunt was a very couragious lady who battled with Parkinsons disease for the last 20 years. She never complained and continued to live life to the best of her ability even when the disease took such a hold that she lost the ability to walk and then even talk. She spent the last 12 months in a hospital for the terminally ill after my uncle lost his sight through the stress of being her carer. She had such an impact on the staff that they all turned up to the funeral today! Ours is a large local family, my aunt had 5 daughters and 51 grandchildren and great grandchildren (inc one great-great grandchild!) so today was a very big family affair. The majority of us still all live locally and keep in touch so in a way we are our own support mechanism. My mum visited my aunt every week throughout her illness and this continued during her hospital stay, and would come back with wonderful stories of what she had been up to and how much she made the nurses laugh. My aunt even allow the local teaching hospital to try a pioneering operation which entailed drilling directly into her brain whilst she was awake and sitting up (as the severe shaking stopped when she was asleep) in an effort to find a cure for Parkinsons. Although it didnt help her it will hopefully have given them information towards a cure for the future.

Just my small tribute to a great lady and the godmother I adored.

hi hun i have sent you a pm , love dee xx

Hi hun,

I am really sorry for your loss, she sounds like a truly wonderful Lady and so caring to go through with such an operation for others.

The Earth's loss, but Heavens gained a new Angel who will be watching over you in everything you do. And at least there she will be free from the suffering.

Take lots and lots of care and know that we are all thinking of you and we are all here when you need us.

Loads of Love to you and your family,
