Probably not supposed to post it here but bugger it, she was my Mum.
My wonderful 89 year old Mum left us at 10.30 this morning. Until she got the dementia which really consumed her in the last few years, she never missed a Manly game, though always on the telly in the last 20 years.
Her first Manly game was with the kid version of me at the 1972 grand final. We were both died in the wool
Maroon and White from that day on. Poor old Dad was a Parra supporter but would sit up on the hill with us every week, rain, hail, or shine. Theyโ€™d bring their folding chairs, their thermos of coffee, and their ham sandwiches and settle in for all three grades.
May you Rest In Peace my beautiful Mum and, as for the 2020 Sea Eagles .... win it for Mum!!!

I'm very sorry to hear of your wonderful mum's passing. Mums are wonderful and always know what to say and when to say it (and when to listen).

Wishing you and your family all the peace and strength during these very hard times.

@Budgewoi Eagle I lost my mum aged 82 in 2005 following a 7 year battle with Dementia, so I certainly feel your pain and from someone whoโ€™s gone through it , itโ€™s certainly a unique sort of pain.

My deepest condolences to you and your extended family.

Letโ€™s hope we win a big one for her in 2020.

Condolences... Speaking from experience, it is not easy to deal with and likely not a day will pass without you thinking of her. Things will become easier with time
