    Hi Everyone.

    I made a post on this forum a few months ago seeking support whilst preparing to loose my mum. I thank everyone who replied and added in their messages of kindness <3

    Mum passed away on the Thursday that just passed, during the blue supermoon. Surrounded by her family, mum utilised her right to access Voluntary Assisted Dying (VAD) to finally be at peace and not in pain anymore.
    Her passing was beautiful. She said her self that she was ready and comfortable to go. She just went to sleep and that was it. I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way and I am eternally grateful to the doctors who helped make her passing as tranquil and peaceful as possible.

    Now that she’s gone I am able to start a new chapter in my journey with Mum supporting me from afar.
    And thank you for reading this and allowing me to share my mum’s story.

    Love you mum <3

    Dear @turtle, I do remember your previous post, and I thank you for sharing this profoundly beautiful story of your mum’s passing. While the grief must be there too, I can sense the calm and the renewed purpose through your words. Please know that should you need an ear to listen at any time in your journey, we are here for you. Meanwhile, I wish you well in this new chapter of your life.


    Hey @turtle,

    I’m so sorry for your loss, but thank you for sharing this moment with us. I’m glad to hear that your mum passed away peacefully, surrounded by love, and under her own terms. That’s a beautiful gift you were able to give her.

    It’s touching to know that you feel like you can move forward in this new chapter of your life with your mum watching over you. I’m sure she’d be incredibly proud of the strength you’re showing through this difficult time.

    Remember, we’re here whenever you need support, a listening ear, or even if you just want to share more stories about your mum. Take it one step at a time, and don’t forget to take care of yourself, too.
