Happy New Year to all my blogger friends. I hope it's a year of peace, health and happiness for all.
I'm a bit late with good wishes, but we've had a difficult start to 2012.
Hubby's Mum passed away suddenly on 30th December, and we're just back from her funeral. She was 90 years old, nearly 91, and was active up to the very end, even doing crosswords the night before! at 90 years of age! She had a heart attack that morning, her daughter was with her, and she passed quickly, peacefully and without pain. She was a wonderful mother and grandmother, and will be sorely missed by all.
Unfortunately, a tragedy has also struck the family. Hubby's cousin, a 20 year-old student, was assaulted on 23rd December, struck on the head several times, fell to the ground and sustained head injuries. He has been on life support since then, and that was switched off yesterday,
New Year's Day.
His parents are devastated, heartbroken. Their only consolation is that his organs are donated.
(Edit:"AT LEAST five people have been given the gift of life by a biomedical science student who died after a horrific assault on a festive night out: his lungs, kidneys, liver and heart were donated")
Please keep them in your thoughts at this very difficult time.
