And angry, so angry.

My grandson has passed his exams and is now a chartered accountant.

They wouldn’t listen to me when I begged for help for my darling daughter, they let her die.

She loved him so much , encouraged him , her husband and three children will celebrate together but she isn’t here.

So very sad, Annie. I feel for you.

Your daughter's legacy has shone through.

Oh Annie I feel your pain and feel so sad for you. It was your darling daughter who gave him the chance to achieve this. I am sure they will all be thinking of her. It will be a celebration tinged with sadness. Sending you hugs xx

Annie I feel for you flowers

Can I ask areyou invited to spend time celebrating with them?
You could stand in as her ‘ambassador’ mark her presence as it were?

Her legacy lives on in her son. Congratulations to him for his achievement - try to see it as hers too. flowers

Annie, I mean every day to contact you a sixth month member of GN to say how much I value everything you post.

I might be a stranger to you but you are an inspiration. I echo everything Lucky says.

This must be unbearably sad for you but I hope you can also feel some of the pride your daughter would have felt today. Congratulations to your grandson. It's a marvellous achievement.

Annie 💐
But you can be so proud of him both for you and for your DD.
He has done so well, despite the pain of bereavement.

Annie Congratulations to your Grandson. How wonderful after all that the family’s been through. Congratulations to you, too, after all you brought up your DD which enabled her to know how to do her best for him. 💐

You can imagine how she would have felt had she been here and it is that that hurts.She should be here and it's just not fair. I truly understand your anger.

glammanana Fri 30-Aug-19 17:43:48

Annie I wish I could give you a hug but I'll send one instead ((hug)).
Take some congratulations for yourself and your DD for giving this young man a good start in life and be proud of his achievements,your DD will be watching over him thats for sure. flowers

annie you can be so proud on your daughter's behalf.

I believe our lost loved ones are still around, but we can't see them. Maybe she was there in some way to make sure her son got through.

Don't be sad, be proud and happy. Share this in your mind's eye with your DD.

I hope I haven't offended you, but I do believe our dear loved ones are around, especially at these special times. Xx

Thank you all for your kindness.

I was upset this morning, my son in law telephoned me, his voice broke a little when he said ‘she should be here’.

Then memories flooded back, all his exams, a phone call from her, Mum he got etc. I missed that phone call this morning.

Again thank you x

Sending kindest thoughts to you flowers and huge congratulations to your grandson

Just another memory came to me, my grandson loved maths, I hated maths, he use to stay with me often at weekends,only
lived 10 minute walk away. I would record Countdown every day, on Saturdays fast forward through the recordings to the maths .

When he got a 1st in economics she phoned, said ‘Mum a 1st,
all those years you struggled through Countdown did it 😀

Such a day of mixed emotions for you Annie - pride at what your grandson has achieved as well as such overwhelming sadness his mum isn't there to see it flowers
