A very happy day for our family, the first of our four children to get married.. A wonderful very special day.
The sadness was that my mum wasn’t there, she had waited for so many years hoping for a family wedding and she was too ill to attend. We had even been out shopping to get mum a new suit and she had been happy that it was smart – dressing appropriately was important to mum.
We look at the pictures with her, eat fruit cake she smiles but it doesn’t seem to trigger any of her wedding memories.
