Yes I do miss my mum

I'm just clearing the backlog of messages from the last 6 months and have this one. Yes, I miss my mum.

She used herself up on other people - and herself - and flashed out early. I consider that to be honourable, but I miss her.

"Cullen I am proud to have called your Mum my dearest friend, she helped me greatly when we were both active in SAEBOW.

Actually we were friends even before that group came into being. We stirred the pot and pestered the hell out of the bureaucrats.

She would launch an attack from one side and me from the other.

Mum picked me up when I was down and pushed me when I had lost impetus.

She published my writings when I began to look for a way out of bullying.

Cullen she was my Pole Star and guided me greatly.

You have the right to be proud of her and I am sure she is proud of you.

On her passing I lost a great friend, my sounding board.

Regards"

  1. I have only just seen this now as I too am wading through emails that I didn't get to over the Xmas season. I love this message and I completely agree with your expression that she used herself up on other people and herself and flashed out early.

    I was only just wading through her last emails sent from her computer yesterday. I miss her too, so much. xx
