Her Name was Margaret

My mum passed away on Saturday, 6 February 2016.
Her name was Margaret.
She featured on my blog a lot over the years,
and it’s only right and proper that her final chapter be recorded here.
She received a late diagnosis of cancer in mid-December 2015.
She chose not to share her story outside of family and close friends.
She died as she lived: with strength, grace, love and faith.

This is our beloved; this is our friend. 
Song of Songs 5:16
There will be no blog posts this coming week.

  6. So sorry to hear this Ruth. I really enjoyed any posts that featured your mom. She loved your little guy, and all her family so well. I'm know that you have a journey of grief ahead, and I hope you will be gentle with yourself as you walk it.
    It's so great that you took so many pictures and scrapbooked your life so well. Granny will feature prominently in your albums, I'm sure.
    All the best to you as you endure this very hard episode in your life. Nancy Peacock, Edmonton, Alberta CANADA
