A few years ago my daughter, Mia, and I visited my beautiful and courageous cousin Heather at her home overlooking the Firth of the Forth. We spent a lovely evening with her and her long-term partner Paul chatting, looking at photographs of their travels and laughing a lot. All of us knowing that she didn't have much time left. In the morning we took a walk and I got to spend some time with my cousin in the fresh air. She was inspiring and amazing and at peace with everything. That was the last time we saw her. In July 2017 Heather lost her battle with cancer. Mia and I plan to commemorate her and my amazing Auntie Jess who also sadly lost her battle almost a decade previously. We do this in memory of these inspirational women, always loved, never forgotten.
