This is a question Mums

Mrs Liveinabin tells us: My mum told me to eat my vegetables, or I wouldn't get any pudding. I'm 32 and told her I could do what I like. I ate my vegetables. Tell us about mums.

Do you want a drink? You're gonna need it!
Back in 2007, mum came out to visit me in March with a huge ass lump on her face. She went to the doctor the day she got back and was diagnosed with the cancer. More tests later over a couple months and the primary was actually in her lungs and had spread throughout her body. Much chemo followed and the cancer was diagnosed as terminal.
*wavy lines*
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

November 2007. The husband had kicked me out for the first time, so was renting a room from my friend. Another friend wanted to take me out for dinner one night for a girls night out and my roommate offered to drive us so we could get drunk. So, off we toddle to the local bar for a quick beer, then we had to go to another bar to pick up my friends daughter.

We walk into the bar, and Shell was stood at the bar. Usual hugs all rounds and Shell asks if I want a drink. "Sure", says I. "Good", says she, "you're going to need it" and points at a table a few feet away.

My mind starts working......'oooh, that looks like Gwen and Brian..and Ray' and WHAT THE FUCK???????????

Mum, her boyfriend and their two friends had flown out from the UK to suprise me. Surprised??? Many hugs and tears later, we had a great two weeks.

Everyone except me knew about it, god only knows how they managed to keep it so secret!

And that was the last time I ever saw my mum. She died Feb 21/22 2008 (21st US time, but 22nd UK time). I miss you, mum xx.

I defy anyone to listen to that and not think of lost friends
- and get leaky eyed.

I definitely got a leaky eye
I'm just not telling which eye

I played it at the memorial service I had for her here in the States.
Not a dry eye in the house. But then the final song was I Am Woman by Helen Reddy and the funeral home let us do a brandy toast!

Damn fine send off.
My mum deserved one like that.

The minister took his stole off
and had a drink with us! Totally for the win and mum would have been proud.
Apparently, her funeral in the UK was a right somber affair (I couldn't get home as I was waiting on my green card and wouldn't have been allowed back in the US)
