The short story of her death is this:
Mum took ill 10 days before she died with a cancerous growth the size of a football which was attached to the outside area of her large bowel. There was no evidence of this, she had no pain, she had no large stomach, no weight loss, she was normal in every way. Approximately 6 months before her death she had CT Scan, plus lots of other routine tests, scans and other test which she usually had done each year due to a condition that she had had for 4 years not being related in anyway to her death or cancer. All test were as they should be, normal. Yes, I saw the results and understand all.
Were my father and I shocked - NO! Cancer works sometimes in mysterious ways. We accepted her death and got on with our lives as my mum would wish us to. My father and I are much alike in many ways.
Mum & Dad's 60th Wedding Anniversary in November 2004. My father was legally blind and still is.
Taken in the winter 2007 just over one year before my mum passed away.
Due to her condition she was taking Cortisone at that time, hence the fuller face.
