Mummy and auntie

Today over at Sticky fingers the theme is Mother Love. My mum passed away 20yrs ago far too early from cancer. Even though its been so long I still miss her everyday. She was a proper Eastender but was smart and funny as well. Don't get me wrong she had a fierce temper and you knew not to miss with her. I adored her as a child and adult, and she would often say " Jill if you hang of my arm anymore I will look like a monkey"! I am sad she is not around to see my children grown up and to have been at my wonderful sons wedding to Karen last year. Also my beautiful daughter Natalie's wedding this year.
Also in the picture is my auntie Mary. As a child she was always around as we spent a great deal of time with her and uncle tom (who is also in the picture), she was my my mums sister in  law. I will always remember her perfect up hair styles and her music she played. Yet another victim of cancer!
 Mum is with the dark hair, auntie Mary blond.

  2. Yes great how pictures make you re live seconds in time. All missed but not forgotten xxx
