Very moving, Aidan, and very thoughtful!
Oh my gosh Aidan - I have tears running down my cheeks !

This image reminds me of a lovely couple we met back in the summer, they were sitting on a bench overlooking the sea just like this - after chatting and laughing with them, it turned out they had lost their son in the sea there - they returned to that bench to be near him daily.

See, you just never know do you !

Yes Aidan this is making me cry too. This is so beautiful and so touching. It is Mother's Day here in Canada on Sunday and I feel a little warm and cuddle anyway. A wonderful piece you have chosen and beautifully done. Thanks a million.
