‘She was a fearless force of nature who loved us ferociously, as we loved her in return. We are forever indebted to the wonderful staff of Ward A22 at Forth Valley Royal Hospital who cared for mum – and us – with the greatest of kindness.
‘She rests now with her darling Duncan, Mr and Mrs A together again. Mum – your strength will carry us forward but you will remain in our hearts forever. Love always. K x’
The mum-of-two also took to Twitter to thank the staff of the hospital was mum has been in. She wrote: ‘We are forever indebted to the wonderful staff of Ward A22 @NHSForthValley who cared for our mum Cathie before she passed away on July 29th. They gave us comfort at a time of desolation and, for that, we are grateful.’
