Those of you who read my blog know that I do Monochrome Madness along with Bren from BRASHLEY PHOTOGRAPHY, however she hadn’t been posting much. She had made a post that she was battling cancer, and I thought perhaps the reason for her absence was that.
Then Aletta from nowathome let me know yesterday that Bren had died. Apparently, Bren’s son, Steve, announced it on Facebook with these words.
Sadly my kind, caring and beautiful Mum peacefully passed away today.
She has been the rock to our family for so many years and it’s going to be so hard to fill her boots. Words can’t begin to describe what a fantastic Mother, Wife and Grandmother she was. She put everyone before herself, and even in her dying moments, I’m sure she was more concerned about Stewie the dog being left alone while we waited with her at the Hospice.Mum decided she wanted a direct cremation and will not be having a funeral, as she didn’t want to upset everyone further. I know she would be so grateful to everyone who sent thoughtful messages over the last few weeks.Thank you for everything Mum and I’ll see you again one day. As you used to say to me as a kid…“Night night, sleep tight, hope the bed bugs don’t bite”
Love you forever and thanks for everything
I hate hearing this, it is always so sad to lose one of us. I wish her family all the best and know they will be grieving for a wonderful person for some time.
It is with a very heavy heart that I do this post. I never met Bren, and I haven’t really met many of you, but I feel like she was a friend as I do with many of you. It is a teary day today.
When you look at Bren’s blog you can see a lot of flowers, she loved them too. I have put together some of my flowers in memory of her and hope you can do the same.
I took this image from the Facebook post and I hope her family doesn’t mind.
Thank you Bren, we will remember you.
Just quickly, on another note I will be taking the following week off. My mum is visiting and I want to spend time with her.
Give someone you love a hug and tell them you love them.
Lots of comments are coming in, but right now I can’t respond to them, so I hope you don’t mind, but I will just approve them and let them sit.
