This is an entirely personal post, please skip if you’d rather read my librarian-y stuff.
Some of you may know that my mum was diagnosed with cancer last summer (I’ve mentioned it before here and here). I’m sorry to say that just over a week ago, in the early hours of Sunday 17 April, Mum passed away. She was in hospital but it was very peaceful, and the whole family was together with her.
Thank you to those people who already knew about this and have sent kind messages. I don’t quite have the energy to respond to everyone but I am reading them and they are a great comfort. I’m with my family at the moment, we’re all still in shock really but are supporting each other the way Mum would have wanted.
