  14. Karen, it’s so hard to believe our world was so suddenly turned upside down only a week and a half ago. Your passing has left a huge void; your presence so strong it will never be replaced, nor would we want it to be. Instead, we will forever love, remember, and celebrate such an incredible woman. You would be so proud of your beautiful children and Peter. The strength, resilience and determination you showed daily has shone through from each and everyone of them since you left. You were an incredible Mum, who loved her children so fiercely and for that I thank you, as it means I have been blessed with such a loving, determined, witty husband, your gorgeous son Gary. Thank you for welcoming me into your family 17 years ago. Thank you for your love, patience, guidance and the many fond memories. Thank you, too, for being such a loving Nanny to Siân, Céilí, Archie and Winnie. We all love you so much. We will miss you, but we will never forget you and will forever love and celebrate you. Sleep peacefully Karen. You are now the brightest star in the sky. With love always, Claire xo

  15. Those we hold most dear never truly leave us, they live on in the kindness they showed, the comfort they shared, and the love they brought into the lives of their family and others.
