"A Mother is a Friend for Life
She'll never give you Grief or Strife
A Husband can leave you for another
For loyalty just look to your Mother

She loved you as a baby
She watched you play and grow
Brought you up to be the person
That people now do know

She did without so many things
So her child could have the best
Then she got old and also ill
So God called her home to rest

So if you have a Mother
Please shower her with love
For the day will one day come
She will be with God above

Another year has come and gone
How the time has flown
But I feel her by my side
And I know I'm not alone

I am on a journey too
The path sometimes unknown
But I just follow that guiding light
The light that leads to Home

             Written by Diane"

"Well today is Mothers Day
And yes - this is day 3 just sitting in my nightie and dressing gown
I only go out when I am forced to
I have those Yellow Rose Petals in the house
I will go out and Scatter them in the garden
That should please the neighbours

"Well I am 62 today - officially
The sun is shining brightly which is what I always loved
I could not ask for a nicer day - but I am alone and you are not here
So everything is pointless as always
At 12.15 am Steve sent me an E Card
He has become my best Friend and I cant bear to think of anything happening to him.
Father Doyle died last month so I have been very unhappy
I shall go out to buy some Yellow Roses as tomorrow is Mothers Day
I miss you as always
Love from Diane."

You were so beautiful
I miss you

"You would have been 92 today Lilian
You will never be forgotten as long as I am here to remember you
Some Yellow Rose Petals came this morning which I ordered
Life goes on here as normal and is full of problems
But today is your Birthday
Have a nice Day in Heaven
Love from Diane"

"Remembering you on the 5th Anniversary of your death
This is the first time it has fallen on a Wednesday which was the day you died so is especially emotional.
I am going down to the Seat we always sat on to leave a Rose there
They have altered the bus times and they are less frequent too but I will get there and back even if it takes me all night to do so
There have been many changes and some of the buses have been re routed which would not have sited you
They STILL have not resurfaced that Pavement around the corner you were always complaining about
I have so much I could tell you but maybe another time
I have written this Poem for you

             It's exactly 5 years
             To the Date and the Day
             When my Mother and Best Friend
             Was taken away

             I often leave Flowers
             Here on this Seat
             And send them with love
             Until next time we meet

                       Written by Diane

I miss my Mother and Best Friend and Companion

       And I always will

            With Love from Diane."

"It will be so nice to have some photos because nobody else but me will even remember you now after 5 years and there is certainly nobody who even cares any more or ever will.

As for me WELL. You know the answer to that one"

"I am trying to get the Photo sorted out. It will be so nice to have your picture on here but I need help in order to do it.

I miss you every day from Diane"

"You were more than just MY MOTHER.
You were my Best Friend and My Life
I go for the same walks we did and talk to you as if you were still there by my side (which I believe you are) and sit on the same seat as we always sat on.
I believe with all my heart that you still look after me from HEAVEN and know what is going on in my life so you will be only too aware that nobody bothers with me apart from the 4 nuns at the Convent and my dearest friend takes her Final Vows this year.
I have also written a Book with a Sequel due out this year sometime and of course the book is dedicated to you (but you will of course know all of this I am sure).
I intend to change this to a Private Site so we can have many more meaningful conversations and I can then tell you everything that is going on in my life and what is in my heart too.
I was chilled to the bone yesterday trying to get some Yellow Roses. I managed in the end and they are in a vase for you to see right opposite your Ashes which will be scattered some day with mine.
I am going to try and go to OUR PLACE where the Ashes will eventually be scattered this year as every day this falls on the same day it did back in 2011. We never did get that DOUBLE FUNERAL did we which I always hoped for but everything happens for a reason and it is all part of GOD'S PLAN. Father O'Donnel is going to do my Funeral and I hope to still be around for his Golden Jubilee next year and have written a Poem for him.
The Vicar from Christ Church which you loved so much keeps in touch with me and has been good to me and I feel guilty about that but my heart has always been in ROME and I am a CATHOLIC in my mind. I have joined a Group on the Internet for MOTHERLESS DAUGHTERS which has given me lots of idea as well and you will be able to come to MY FUNERAL as you can be brought just as you are so that is nice.
I have met a nice man on the Internet and his name is Steve and he is my best friend and seems a lovely man but we are just GOOD FRIENDS.  Well I think that is all of my news for now. Thats been really nice and I hope you have enjoyed it too.
Until the next time have a nice day.
Love from Diane xxxxxx"
