You have occupied a part of my heart ever since

New Zealand

Dear Hugh,

Your brother crafted this button when he was quite young and I felt it a fitting memorial to your life. You are fully acknowledged by all the family now .How I wish you were here to be integrated by us all and see your niece and nephew, enjoy family occasions and get to know your younger brothers.

I sincerely regret my stupidity and my expedience in getting rid of you.

However, you have occupied a part of my heart ever since. I wish I could turn back the clock and be a nurturing mother instead of dismissive self-centred one. I have learned so much about myself by this action, lessons I wish I had not had to learn.

You are never far from my thoughts. Your Mum.
