Sometimes it's hard not to wish for one more day, one more word, one more chance to say goodbye, but you should rest assured that you were a joy to your mum every day of your life and she was immensely proud of you. It was a privilege to know Helen and we can see that her goodness lies on through you and your family. Helen was one of life's true diamonds. Love Karen, Lorne, Leigh & Robert. x
