This is a sad week, my mother Marjorie Robinson died on Tuesday night in Clare Hall Nursing Home, she would have been 92 on the 19th August, this is a picture of her on our wedding day 16th August 2002, she was 80 years old three days after the wedding.
This was the best picture I could find, we are not a family that take a lot of photos.
Mother was an ex Japanese POW with many injuries from the Japanese having been torpedo at sea and captured by the Japanese. Her nickname in the Navy was Bubbles. Nothing made by the Japanese was allowed in the house when I was growing up, I remember a christmas present being given to me, as I opened the present she saw made in Japan the present was taken and put straight in the bin.
She had a peaceful death, the dementia had taken over and she had lost the ability to know how to eat or drink. The home had started feeding her and were wonderful I cant thank you them enough, they gave her so much love and care.
They made sure that we were fed and watered, I must say no wonder she put weight one they food was delicious and she had better care in there than she would have in a hospital
While I sat at her bedside, melting with the heat, I was knitting or tatting.
This picture below is us on our wedding day (the while picture) with Vernon's Dad and my Mother we had one parent each, Vernon's dad died last year and now we have none.
Rest in Peace Mother.
