The mum was a gift sent for Sue's sister Pat's funeral service several years ago; so it is a memento as well as a mum. Pat died from cancer, and although Pat's life was short, she lived a very interesting one. Although originally from La Crosse, Wisconsin, Pat spent a great deal of her life in Basin View, New South Wales, Australia. She loved the outdoors and was always up for an adventure and trying something new. And she is still missed.
So between Sue and I, we make sure we keep this beautiful mum constantly blooming.
