HEADER CHALLENGE - MOM (MUM-MOTHER) BY KATHY
What better music than this
MAMMY by Al Jolson.- Im singing about you.
enjoy as you read my post
Alas - my Mum passed away after suffering with Alzheimer's for around 6 years.
As you know its a terrible disease of the mind, we loose our loved ones TWICE - once with Alzheimer's - taking their memory and twice when they pass away.
My Header shows The family laid some flowers for her 1st Birthday after passing away, together with a Poem I had written for her on her death.
My Poem. - hope you enjoy.
Let me show just a brief look at her life in Photos.
My Mum and I - Around 1952 I was 4-5 - as you can see we had an outside Loo, and I remember we had a tin bath and every Friday was bath night, filling the bath with hot water with a bucket.
I remember we used to go to Ingoldmells ( nr Skegness) every year for a caravan Holiday, taking a touch and walking across the field at night for the toilet, Gas lamps, and every morning emptying the slop bucket and fetching fresh water.
My Mum enjoyed her garden and flowers, also loved dancing.
My father had a bad stroke at the age of 49, and suffered ill health until he died at the age of 56.
Later years My Mum got married for a 2nd time
and still enjoyed her garden,dancing and holidays
This is a photo of my Mum on holiday - just a few years before she started to suffer with Alzheimer's.
My Mum lived till the age of 86.
Mum, I dedicate my music and song MAMMY to you.
In Loving Memory.
