As many of you already know my beloved Mum has been in a Nursing Home since the beginning of this year. When we were in the UK last week for a wedding she was in good form considering her mobility problems and happy in her environment. It was a blessing that we saw her so recently, including our eldest daughter over from Hong Kong, as yesterday afternoon she suffered a severe stroke and just a few hours later passed peacefully away. A few days previously I had been chatting to her about the wedding and how our garden had grown in the few days we were away, she had lots of questions and seemed very happy. I am so very grateful that both she and my Dad had been able to visit us in Italy, together in April 2005 before my Dad died and Mum again in September 2008 with my sister.
This is my tribute to my wonderful Mum.

Thanks Mum for being such a special lady.
This second song is in English and Italian.
No words, translations or biographies today, just the music from Celine Dion and Josh Groban and a video of recent weather over the lake taken not far from where I took the photo, Mum thought the Lago di Bolsena was a beautiful place and I think she would have loved this video and the music I have shared here, hopefully so will you.
