“Why I support Sunflower Memories”

Stella Mitchell supports Sunflower Memories each year by making a donation to name a sunflower in memory of her sister Annie.

“My sister Annie was no shrinking violet, she was fun, lively, incredibly zaney and once met never forgotten. When Annie found out her illness was terminal she was given the name of a Pilgrims nurse who she could phone at any time if she felt fearful or needed to talk – it gave her great comfort. As her carers we could call too – it gave us so much reassurance knowing we weren’t alone.”

Now, two years after our bereavement my husband Jim and I still feel supported – we’re looking forward to coming to our Sunflower Memories event held the hospice Annie was cared for.

“To be among other people who have gone through loss means a lot. We think about Ann all the time, and an event like Sunflower Memories really concentrates your mind. We take comfort in knowing that by giving to the event we are helping to make sure that other families like us can receive the care and peace of mind they need by the hospice.  It’s a way to say ‘thank you’ for all you do.”

Stella and Jim Mitchell
