Mum and Dad were wonderful loving and caring parents. Not just to their own children but many foster children’s over 35 years as foster carers.
Mum had a 15 year battle with Rheumatoid arthritis which then lead to Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD). She was diagnosed with ILD in September 2017 and slowly but surely (too quickly) it became debilitating.
She battled and battled and was so determined but at home in bed with Dad in the room she ran out of breath.
She did not stop her dedication to helping people and even from her bed organised her funeral and care and support for her severely disabled foster daughter. Utilising the power of the internet (we are thinking of inviting the amazon delivery driver to family meals) to shop and ensure people got the best birthday gifts possible.
Sadly, this was not represented at ehr funeral with only 20 people allowed and later the same day lockdown announced. COVID took Dad and Mums husband of almost 49 years just 33 days later, so they are together again now.
