remembering Clare

It's two weeks since our daughter, Clare, died.

This bijou 'fossicked' find was given to me a little while ago by my good friend Jackie @30pics4jackiesdiamond and I have decided to keep just a few flowers/leaves whatever is in season all year round, to remember Clare by.

So nice that for the first time, I found forget-me-nots from the garden to put in it.

Julia, thank you, we are OKish. So much to do at distance (Clare was in Glasgow, we live in the south of England) even though her friends and colleagues are helping a lot. I'm mindful of your 10th anniversary.

Thank you, Peter. Many practicalities to be seen to plus Clare was very unwell so some element of relief mixed with our suffering.

Oh sweetheart, I had missed that news entirely. My deepest love is with you. Bittersweet for you with sadness and that element of relief that she is no longer struggling. As time passes, may the warmth of your memories increase and the sting of the loss decrease. A beautiful simple arrangement of flowers and forget-me-nots are perfect.

What a lovely way to remember Clare. It will take some time to reach acceptance and the pain never goes but you have found a perfect way to cope by finding beautiful things in the world and capturing them in such a gorgeous way. Take care xx

Hazel and Ray, I am so sorry to hear this. There really are no words, but I do pray that you will find comfort in her memory. I am sure she would smile at the tribute of flowers and your many thoughts of her.
