Not really sure why I’m here. I lost my wonderful mum two weeks ago. I cared for her at her house for her final two weeks of life. Holding her hand and comforting her.

Her physical presence might not be here but her memories are still very much alive and I can still close my eyes and hear her voice at will. There is nothing wrong with not letting go of those.
