On Sunday 12th of November my dear Mother Sue Millar was out walking with friends in her beloved Lake District when she fell and sustained injuries that caused a heart attack and organ failure. She was airlifted to Preston hospital where she died very early on Tuesday morning.
My brother and I are devastated. The week before she died we were enjoying a wonderful week at my home in Somerset. Mum was a picture of health and we all had so much to look forward to – exciting things were on the horizon. I am finding it very hard to come to terms with, I’ve lost my best friend as well as my Mother and I’m not entirely sure how I’m going to get through this. The photo of her was taken the day before she died, it was much too early for her to go.
In May 2015 we lost my Father and January of this year my Granny, the magnitude of this loss is almost too much to bear.
If anyone out there is reading this and has experienced loss of this scale (or any scale really) I’d love to hear from you. I will be blogging about my journey in an attempt to reach out to others and move through my grief. I think it’s important that we speak about death and loss and connect through it, as it is so repressed in our culture.
Please do get in touch if you are able.
With love and light
