Mothers Day this year had a tragic turn for me. I lost my mum in February of this year. As mother and daughter, we shared a bond. Like other mums/daughters, I am sure we drove each other crazy sometimes , but she was a special woman. Whether it be shopping trips, a quick glass of wine on the way home, a dessert and 2 spoons or whether it simply be a gossip together, there was a special bond. My mum had just turned 21 when I was born so in some ways, we grew up together. She was more than a mum, she was a friend.
So, when I was asked to assist in the writing of the Mothers Day service speech for Adelaide Cemeteries Authorities that would be delivered by a celebrant friend, how could I say no? It would be a fitting tribute to my mum to not only write the speech but to have a photo of her in the slideshow at the end.
Thank you Mum for our memories and thank you Bec, for the honour of writing this with you.
