My dear mum enjoyed every moment of her 92 years of life, from the early years in Switzerland to her more recent in England. Nothing was more important to her than her family, whether it be our day trips to the coast, or our annual trip over to Switzerland for a holiday. She was always proud of her homeland and loved showing it off to my dad, who adored everything and everyone connected with the country.
When my dad sadly passed away in January 1994 mum said to Jenny that she thought she had a few more years left in her. It turned out to be 21, and in that time she enjoyed every second she could spend with her grandchildren, Daniella and Matthew watching them grow up into the wonderful adults they are today.
A serious health issue tried to take her in 2012, but her determination and independence would not allow it, and during the next two years I was proud and privileged to spend more quality time with her, including days out to the coast for fish and chips or just an ice cream, in what turned out to be her final years.
I am sure there are many, many people who have their own wonderful memories of my mum, a lovely lady, and I invite you to share those you would like others to read about on this page. Thank you.
We must remember to celebrate a life, and be happy that Hanni and Cliff are now together again. May they both rest in peace.
