Pat Musgrove remembers her son Martin on the 10 year anniversary
My name is Pat. I am a mother to four children and grandma to eight. I work at an elderly person’s home and have a dog called Rizzy and a cat called Some Sonil.
I take my dog out for a walk. I go to Bingo two nights a week to meet friends who have been there for me when I needed them most.
Martin was my second son; I have two more children, his sister and brothers. Martin was a loving son and brother, he treated his sister like a queen. I want his daughter Lily, who is now 10 years old, to grow up knowing about her dad so that she can be proud of him as I am.
Martin’s death changed all our lives. There are bad days and good days, and it seems hard for me to see my other children without missing Martin and to see Lily who looks so much like him. No day goes by without missing Martin and thinking of him on October 4th. Martin’s friends are holding a football match for Martin for his 10 year anniversary.
