"My lovely Mum departed this world on October 1st, 2013. She's been in my thoughts lately. On the Solemnity of the Ascension of Our Lord Jesus Christ (05-05-2016), I pray that her beautiful soul continues to rest in perfect peace in the bosom of the Lord, through Christ Our Lord, Amen. One love, Mum."
