Sincere condolences Geerman - similar experience when my Dad died in '03 - I went to Villa away
with a very good mate who's Mum had just died, together with my then 7 and 9 year olds and his 8 year old - a very entertaining game, a good win (3-1, our third was a cracker), great chippy and the kids laughing and joking all day - the best tonic in trouble times. Contrary to your Mum, wherever my Dad was/is, he was undoubtedly tutting at me wasting my time and money over a bag of wind, but for the living, as Mullingar Blue says below, football was one of the glues in the matrix of life that allowed us to 'get back on our horses' - to carry on living and enjoying life despite the misfortunes that befall us and those we love. Here's to your Mum, and to you continuing to remember with a smile the love she gave you and all the great times you shared with her.
My mum died last week and my thoughts were with her yesterday after our win she always loved it when they won mainly because it made me happy for the rest of the week. But also because she knew how important the club meant to me in my life. But when I was out and about travelling over the years she used to watch the game and tell me how well or poorly over the years and I could hear the joy in her voice when I phoned her
She was 88 years old and lived a good life will always think about her when the blues play miss you mum and yesterday was for you
