New year's eve 2000 we all thought the world was going to end. 2 months after, my world did end. We had a brilliant night. I had to feed my dad wine through a straw, and give him a cigarette. He had stopped smoking and drinking for 2 years, but his diagnosis was so bleak he decided, 'bugger it!'. We had a house full of friends, we laughed, and for one day, it wasn't about MND. He died on the 4th of February 2000. I miss him everyday. I was 18 when we lost him. I miss him everyday. I'm now 41.
For my lovely, lovely Dad. You are missed every day and are loved forever. Christmas just isn't the same without you, I can't believe this is the 3rd one you're missing already. I know you'll pop by at some point. Til we meet again ❤️
Dad, not a day goes by where your not thought of, I love and miss you so much you now have more grandchildren that you never got to me who I know you would have adored, I still can’t believe it has 13 years xxx
In memory of my mum who was diagnosed with a rare form of MND in November 2018 and sadly lost her battle in July 2019. We raised £1000.00 for MND to help our people as my mum was helped and supported by the MNDA
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
