So Christmas is nearly upon us once again...... A time for giving, sharing, fun, laughter and good food. But it also makes us remember people we love who are no longer here to celebrate.

 

I turn 41 on Sunday, :-( and it has always been a tradition in my family that the decorations go up on my birthday.

 

When I had my own family, the tradition continued, however my loving Mum and Dad are no longer here to join in, and putting up the decs whilst celebrating my birthday brings both joy and pain because it brings back so many memories. (My Dad loved Christmas so much he had us playing Christmas carols as a kid on my sisters birthday........... 15th Nov lol)

 

So I want to remember my Mum and Dad (and the other family members and friends whom I have loved and lost) by raising a CAG drink to them.

 

Please join in by raising a glass of your loved ones favourite tipple and feel free to add a story as to why you raise that glass.

 

Merry Christmas every one xx

Dad (02/1997) I raise a glass of port to you because you made me believe Santa preferred this to milk. I love and miss you, God bless

 

Mum, (09/2007) I raise a glass of Baileys to you because that's all you drank. :| lol, I love and miss you, God bless

 

I raise a glass of Rose wine (my tipple) to the rest of my family and friends no longer with us. I love and miss you, God bless

What a lovely idea for a thread. :-)

 

Glass of Jack duly raised to my Gran and Grandad, and Nanna and Grandad. Also to my BIL's Mum, who sadly passed away in late November.

 

Bless you all.

I bought a special xmas gift for my late mother who passed away in april 2008. It's a little angel that sits in a sort of halo and it reads under the halo......every time a bell rings an angel gets their wings.

 

I will be raising a lot of glasses this exmas

My late wife who passed away on 25-1-99 due to 2nd term breast cancer she passed away just 7 days after our youngest son's 6th birthday Sue will never know how much she is missed and I still remember her every day and some days so much more than others....no one can see me reading the various cards at the shop ....searching trying to find the right card for her when I take the card to the cemetary or when I buy flowers to take....when the lady askes ...shall I wrap them and i say no they are for her grave and her birthday being 10-10-57 and her burial plot being 10-57.....why why was that I will raise a glass for the three miscarries she had too before our boys came along

I will raise a glass to her twin sister who also passed away due to breast cancer on 11-7-95 it was ME who had to give the UCU staff a time to cut her life support due to none of her family could do it.

I will raise a glass to the late husband of my late sis in law when he also passed away 16 months after she did and my late wife and i helped look after their 4 youngest children to help give their nanna a break.

I will raise a glass for the elder and younger of my sisters who also died of their cancers in in October 2003 and March 2005 and for my eldest brother who died from a massive stroke in july 2000.

I will raise a glass to the 24 year old nephew who "silly boy" got involved with drugs and died in jan 07 and then last june his elder brother Vincent died too....early 40's while in hospital waiting for his wife to come to pick him up due to he had been.....cured...the case will be starting soon.

I will raise a glass to my mum who died on 2nd of April just 20 minues after my two sons and i went to see her she was 91 and had such a hard life it was me who closed her tired little eyelids and not a nice thing for my boys to have witnessed....their nanna passing away right in front of them....we were not expecting it.

I will raise a glass to my late dad.......he died in nov 80 he came through Dunkirk but lost a leg during dispatch motor cycle riding over here while waiting for his regiment to be re-formed.

Lastly I will raise a glass to me....I survived a heart attack and will strive to be here for my son's,some family and friends and good friends in here.There are some who I will have missed here to raise a glass too but due to the way my head aches I cant remember them all.....I may be stoshed xmas day if I raised a glass to them all so I'll just have to one glass for them all....rip my lovely family xxxx

Slightly belated glass raised to my late wife, who would have turned 40 on the 7th.

 

I'm remarried now and happy, but this stuff doesn't ever go away.

I've not been on CAG fo a long time and have only just seen this beautiful thread.

 

Can I raise a belated glass to my beautiful son, Mark, who passed away on 26th November.

He only got sick in August and passed suddenly that Monday evening.

I was in the hospital talking to him only an hour before he died.

Keep singing with the Angels Mark!xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
