Five Years Later

 A year for farewell and welcome. We said goodbye to Margie’s mother Sheila Delaney (née Dowling) in November and celebrated her life with endless pots of tea and family gatherings.

In early March, just before COVID-19 Lockdown, Leiny travelled back to Ireland and we laid the last of Margie’s ashes under her oak tree.

On 21st June, Margie’s grandson Pepijn was born in London to her daughter Leiny.

A letter written by Margie to her sister Tina after the birth of Tina’s first child, Rommeij, almost 32 years ago. It was lovely to read and gain an insight into Margie’s experience of motherhood.
