5th February 2023

This was the day in 2016 that we laid Margaret to rest. It was an emotional week following her death on the 31st January 2016. 

Many grateful thanks to our three boys Steven, Philip and Matthew, they got me thro, with the help of Yvonne, Jacqui and Fiona.

The church service was in the afternoon @ Sandyhills Church and as I reflected this week with a funeral in the church to that day in 2016 the thoughts came flooding back.

Just over a week ago I was nursing Margaret in Edinburgh Royal Infirmary as best I could with a Burns Supper on the 25th and a meal on 26th but she then took a turn for the worst unbeknown to us at the time it was her time to go to the Lord. 

I am so grateful to all of Margaret’s family and my boys and their families with me during the week to follow with so much to do.

You can never prepare yourself for that time especially as we had two scares previously with issues, but Margaret pulled through each of them. Sometimes I wondered how she managed it with MS and each problem further making her dependent on others for her needs. 

Despite, all the problems that she had to deal with we managed some great holidays together till her final moments. 

Rest in peace Margaret

Deep are the memories
Precious they stay
No passing of time
Will take them away


 Thank you Margaret for everything.
