Rose Marshall, Never to be forgotten

Forgive me if I have already contacted you but for those to whom I have not spoken  during the past few days I am writing to let you know that my lovely Mamma passed away, very peacefully & with great dignity, on Wednesday morning, cared for by the wonderful staff at Cartmel Grange Nursing Home.

It has been a very long goodbye -over a three & a half year period- but we were all with her, holding her & speeding her on her way as the end came.

Naturally we miss her but, at 101 years of age, she had a tremendously long life, lived to the full & always, first & foremost, for other people.

If I can have a tiny fraction of the influence
on the lives of others  that Rose had
our time on this earth will
not have been wasted...
