Swans memories of a special person... 07:54 - Apr 21 with 3496 viewsStarsky

She came with me to watch the Swans get trounced 4-1 at Walsall (Fellows Park)

Was there with my dad in the West stand for Tosh's first game against Watford in 1978

When I arrived back home from THE Preston game in 1981, She decorated my bed with Swans towels and other memorabilia

When my son was the Swans mascot, she came to the hospitality meal after the game against Barnet and nearly fell down East Bank steps after drinking most of the wine from 2 tables.

When she had Dementia, she started supporting Chelsea and loved Fat Frank.

RIP mum... you were the best!

Even though my dad was a rugby man he took me to games before I was old enough to go on my own.
He died last year and suffered that horrible illness dementia for the last few years.
Keep the good memories in your heart Starsky

RIP Starsky’s mum

Lovely words Starsk, know exactly how you feel my Mam came with me to watch us in Paris against PSG back in 1982 and she hadn't even been to the Vetch then I don't think 😂
Sadly she passed away in 1993 but the memories live on forever.
My thoughts are with you and your family.

Thanks to all your lovely comments guys.
Bluey... although she had dementia, it was bowel cancer that took her.
It was only discovered last week... advanced.
So too late for chemotherapy and we avoided the latter stages of dementia.
A peaceful end and feeling blessed that the dementia didn't take her.
85 years old and now with my dad who passed on 4 years ago.

Memories and experiences are all we ever really have of value, not possessions, egos or toys. It sounds like you have some great ones with your mum my friend. Not really a comfort, but one can't hope for more.

Sorry to hear Starsky.

We have had our differences on here, mostly you being a pompous ass to me, but this is a forum online and not real life.

Losing such a close loved one is the most devastating pain, especially one with an illness, and I feel for you. Having dealt with this recently myself, I can assure you it never gets easier to deal with. The immediacy of the pain will eventually subside but you will always miss them, and they will never be back. It sucks, "God" sucks, and life is meaningless.

The good memories will always be there to comfort you, though, and it sounds like you are doing a good job of that already. Keep pictures around and talk openly of her to others, and it will feel a little better. This is obvious but really does help.

I know you've dealt with loss before and I am not trying to be your therapist. But just know you're not alone, and it will get better with time. My condolences for your loss.
