Diamond Des, a wonderful and adored brother, husband, son, stepdad, uncle, cousin and a great friend to so many.
Des worked so hard for all his life to maximise his fitness. Des was the most capable man. Asthma, Appendicitis, Prostate Cancer, they could not bring him down. At the time he was diagnosed with MND & FTD he was still incredibly fit and cycling 20 miles a day. This savage disease represented everything Des was not.
Sadly Des passed away during lockdown.
We miss you Diamond 💎
Your MND battle was a short 4 months and you still smiled and laughed during that time.
You were very brave and decided You didn’t want any life sustaining treatment and left it in gods hands. You didn’t show any fear about dying and your religious faith kept you strong!
You didn’t lose your voice or your swallowing just like you wanted from the start and died peacefully
You were the best mum, grandmother and wife!!
Run free mummy and smile :)
To my wonderful mum who at a late stage was diagnosed with MND. You were a great mum to me and my brother, and a wonderful grandmother too. You are deeply missed. I will remember all the fond memories we had together. Hope you are at peace, and that you are smiling down at us. Love you always. From your daughter, Lorna.❤️xx
