THANK YOU for all the love… and what do you think?

Hello there how are you? I am getting there we arrived back in the UK and I am frantically trying to catch up with so much that I have outstanding. I want to say a heartfelt THANK YOU to each and every one that took time to leave me a comment, sent me a beautiful card, text me, facebook me, email and rang me. Thank you for your lovely  messages of support for me and my family, they made me cry as I read them and they also filled me with warmth, to think that so many of you have been thinking of me and my family at this sad time was comforting and very much appreciated, THANK YOU.
Seeing my mum burial was the hardest thing I have so far experienced  in my life, seeing my sister so upset and distraught broke my heart even further and I constantly wished I could have made it easier for her. I am thankful for my husband and my brother in law who were true superstars throughout this. My heart aches for my dad whom we left on his own in the house where they shared so much together, I am counting the days till he can join us for a few months while the immense grief he feels right now starts to fade slowly, is going to be a long road I am sure. We take comfort in the fact that mum is now in a much better place free of pain and suffering and we also take comfort in the fact that she didn't suffer too long on this Earth. She will live in our memories and our hearts forever and I know it will be hard every day but I also know I will cope and it will get easier in time, is because of her I am here on this Earth and coping and carrying on is what I owe her, she gave me my strength and positive outlook in life for which I will be forever grateful. Love you so much Mama.
Once again if you took time to contact me and even if you didn't have time to do so but you though of me at this sad time I THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.
