Christine Miller

Christine Miller was a much loved wife, mother, sister and friend to many. She was a wonderful woman who was compassionate, caring and loving. She was fortunate to spend the last few weeks of her life at St Elisabeth's Hospice. Christine was incredibly grateful for the wonderful care she received at Saint Elizabeth's Hospice. She felt indebted to the loving staff and volunteers who made her stay there so peaceful and restful. The care she received was outstanding and every need and wish was accommodated. The Hospice allowed Christine the freedom to continue to enjoy some of the things she loved most, friends, family, the garden, sunlight and trips out. She understood and was appreciative of all of the fund raising that had gone on to allow her to stay at the hospice and one of her dying wishes was that those of us who she left behind should continue this great work to allow other terminally ill patients to have the same dignified end to their lives. Leading up to her stay at the hospice Mum was cared for by many professionals but particularly by Dr T. J. Podd and Prof G. Hanna, and trusted their opinions and judgements. Everyone involved with Mum's care made the last 18 months of her life considerably more tolerable than it could have been. And her whole family wishes to thank everyone involved. Her work with the disabled has touched many people's lives and given people hope, support and guidance. She will be remembered dearly by those she worked for and with. Christine’s cooking was renowned for being delicious and enjoyed by all. She had the ability to cook something out of nothing and it always turned out to be a 5 star meal. Christine had a love for the outdoors, gardening and nature. Her compassion extended to all of these and was demonstrated in her love for animals except slugs. During her lifetime she had many pets but we would like to give special mention to Minou, Charley Brown, Tompkins, Spider, Suzy, Marigold and Hazel. As a family we spent many happy hours with Christine walking along the banks of Suffolk's beautiful rivers. She also loved her sister and brother-in-law's special home and garden in Derbyshire where she spent many peaceful days. She was a long standing member of the RSPB and we could often be found standing alongside her with binoculars peering into a bush. For us there will always be a part of her in these special places.

Christmas just won't be the same this year. I will miss you mum and there will be a big hole in the shape of you. Waking up and you not being there at breakfast. I will miss the delicious mince pies and bread sauce. Helping to prep the veggies together. Hiding in the kitchen to avoid the board games! Giggling over charades. Taking the Christmas Day walk. Giving you your presents. You will be in our thoughts and i love you always xxxxxxxx

Tribute: Mum to me was my hero and always will be my hero. She has always been there fighting my corner, to listen to my problems, my dreams and also my crazy ideas. Mum would support me as much as she could so I could have a normal life. In my younger years she would help me get ahead in life, whether it was helping me ride my big blue disability trike, or using a whole Sunday to finish some GCSE English course work, or teaching me to ride with RDA. Mum was always the life and soul of any party from 18 year old Thomas Wolsey birthdays to weddings. I was her dance partner even if it was just us in the kitchen rocking along to jive bunny while cooking. My friends say I’m a good cook; well I learnt from the best. Mum’s food was never boring and you could bet your bottom dollar on it having garlic in it, which is probably why I was single for so long. Mum always wanted the best for everyone and always put herself last, trying to help anyone and everybody. I could stand here and talk for hours on end and still not paint a complete picture of that remarkable woman, so I would like to say thank you to mum for putting up with for all these years and I promise you I’ll do you proud.
