sad news about my mum (super sprout)
« on: March 01, 2007, 07:07:40 »
i hope this appropriate to start a new thread but i felt the news warrented it.

i am very sorry to say that my mum died in the early hours of this morning in the hospice. she passed away peacefully in her sleep quietly and without pain which is what she wanted. the hospice called me at 3am and i ran all the way but missed the evnt but was still able to say goodbye.

i would like to take this opertunity to say a very big thankyou for all your kind messages of support for mum and myself. they meant alot to both of us.

mum loved her allotment and would talk about it and the various forums she went on alot to me. she loved to help and inspire people on their allotments and derived great joy from the help she gave. I like to think that, while she will not be able to plant, not dig and mulch anymore, through all of you guys she will in someway be enjoying allotments all over the country and will get many more seasons and squashes :)

If any of you felt like writing with your experiences and stories aboout mum or just to say hello please feel free. my address for the next month will be:

Flat 3, 27 Minster Precincts
Peterborough
PE1 1XZ

I will be making a donation to Thorpe Hall for all the help and assistance they have given mum and me and would welcome anyone else who felt like doing the same.

Thanks again for all the kind words, flowers and cards that have flooded in. mum really enjoyed them in her final days and made her feel very special. I am sure that at some point i will have a plot of my own and will be back asking alot of questions.

Thank you all again for bringing so much enjoyment and happiness into mums life.

Will

Will, I am so sorry, your Mum will be missed on here more than anyone can say.  You are so lucky to have had such a special person as your Mum.  Treasure your memories of her.  I wish there was more that I could do to help, and will most certainly donate in her memory.  Please take care of yourself and keep in touch with us.

Thinking of you

Hugs, T. x

Will, I am so so sorry.

I don't think there's a poster across numerous boards that hasn't been thinking of your mum in these past few days.

My heart goes out to you love and hope that you have enough people around you to keep you strong.

So long Supersprout.  It's been an absolute joy knowing you girl.  You will always be very special.

Thank you for letting everyone on the forum know your sad news about your mum. I will miss her postings very much.

I had only just heard of her illness via the forum, you obviously have been dealing with it for longer, but I know this will not lessen the shock.

Great picture Tim, and a fitting tribute.

Will,

I am so very, very sorry.
Thank you so much for letting us know yourself, in the midst of everything.
 
We were lucky people here to have known Supersprout. She was the first person to welcome me to A4A and she was always an absolute joy to be around here on the boards.

My thoughts and prayers for you and the family join everyone else's.

I'm so very sorry to hear your sad news, Will and thank you for taking the time to let us know.  As others have said she hasn't been far from any of our thoughts for the last few days.  Sarah will be very sadly missed by us all but I for one will be growing the Country Pumpkin seeds she so kindly sent me, and so as you say there will be more seasons and more squashes.  With much love Alice x
