Missing my sister Jenifer on her birthday.

Yesterday would have been my sisters Jenifer’s birthday she sadly passed away suddenly a few months ago. It was a huge shock to us all and how we all miss her. .

She was one I could talk to about anything and despite the news we could always laugh at times   Many of life crisis, health, family, love, career and so many other topics were discussed. Jen was always a listener and then would advise once I had has my say. I got to know her well when she nursed her husband for so many years until he moved into a Care home and she was there every day till he passed away. Jenifer always saw the good in most of us and was always there in times of need and support!

I was so lucky to have had her in my life  and also two other great sisters Eleanor and Rosemary who miss her dearly. It was a hard first visit to my home town and she was not there, but this is life and you have to enjoy what you have. It is so hard also for my brother in Bermuda who is so far away.

Yesterday in my Dad’s old church in Ayr the flowers were dedicated to her by the family and as we all love flowers  like she did it is a great way to remember her! She would love it but would never want any fuss. A typical Scottish lady.

My thoughts are with her family Stuart, Caroline and their families. 

Always make time for those you love that are dear to you! Never put off that visit or call . Even in these busy times in life cherish those you love and be their like Jenifer was for us in times of need.

Miss you Jen xxx
