Memories of Mum

Today it has been a whole year since my mum died.  Here I have added some photos remembering all of the happy moments spent together.  There are many happy memories that I cherish, these photos are but a snapshot of the wonderful, kind, beautiful and courageous Sharon Dickerson.  My mother.

a school sports day. 1980's

Us, I loved this jumper which
Mum bought in River Island

At a family wedding in the mid 1990's

  4. Gina, what a beautiful pictorial tribute to your Mum - I can see where you get your love of glam from. The clothes in themselves tell a story - 1980s!!!! So lovely to see such a close family - you must miss her dreadfully. But what a gorgeous and special fund of memories. Thank you for sharing them.
