In memory of Doreen Lipman

So far we have raised

£2,478.00

This is for our amazing Mum/Wife who enriched all our lives & gave so much to others though her naturally lovely, caring personality, in addition to all her voluntary work. She fought so bravely, with such dignity against this disease and although we lost her far too soon and miss her every moment of every day, we know she would have wanted to do everything she could to help someone else going through a similar battle.

We hope by setting up this page we can stop other families from going through what we are experiencing and the immense loss we feel at losing the most important, special person we will ever have in our lives. We know how very lucky we were and that nothing can ever replace her, but we do know we must do everything we can to cherish her memory and continue her work to help others.

We love you Mum/Doreen and will never, ever forget you.

Happy Mothers Day to the best mum I could have ever ever asked for. You were perfect. I miss you so much.. I wish you were here so I could have told you how much you meant to me...but I have to believe somehow you still know and can hear me. I couldn't have been luckier having you as my mum. Thinking of all the times you were there when I needed you, all the things you did and all the love you gave. I love you. xx

Hi Mum... Know you would have found losing Aunty Doris difficult this month... if it is possible I think of you even more during these moments (and not sure why but I found Valentines day difficult this year??). Three vaccine jabs this month (although still praying dad has no side effects)...I hope this leads us to more positive times..but still find it hard not to worry while this virus is still so prevalent .. but know being in so much has been really hard for dad. Keep looking over us mum.. we still need you. I miss you every single day. There is not a moment I would not give anything to have a chat with you. Love you x

Hi Mum...there are still some days I can't believe you are not here...and how I go on without you. I really miss you. I've re-read some of the messages I have left...and to be honest I don't really feel differently to how I have always. I've always really resonated with the comparison to losing a limb when you lose someone you love...in that you have to find a new way to exist without it... but I am still struggling to get used to it. I continue to be constantly worried about dad...he is incredible..so resilient...but I just want him to get his second jab so I know he is as safe as possible...and to stay healthy. The thought of you looking over us and protecting us from all the horribleness helps...please continue - me, Ant and dad still need you. I love you and always will. You are never far from my thoughts x

What a year mum... a year I have prayed even more than usual that you continue to look over us...and we still need that more than ever. Like so many others I hope and pray for a healthier, brighter 2021...our main priority continues to be dad and ensuring he is safe, healthy and protected...to be honest that is all I really want in 2021 and the last few weeks have just re-enforced that. I have started to see more and more of myself in you this year.. sure you will be :) at that! Gosh I miss you mum. Although I am glad you are not having to go through all the horribleness of 2020, I still find it heartbreaking you are not with us..but you are always in my head and heart. Loving you always xx

Oh mum- what a xmas..and what a year. I have to believe you are there listening to me when I talk to you and that you continue looking after us every day. It really has been a tough couple of weeks where we have needed that. I miss you every single day, but would hate you to be going through these horrible times. We love you and as we do every year missed you today, but you are with us in so many ways (i.e. my calendar) Please please continue to look over and after us...dad means everything to us and we are trying our very best to keep him safe and well. We love you now and always xx

A hard month mum.. I only pray and take comfort you are looking over and after us and keeping dad safe. I don’t think I’ll ever stop worrying I’m not doing enough/the right thing. All we want is for him to be safe and healthy. Also very sad news for our family this month, which I know would have devastated you. I miss you every single day.. please please continue to look over us. We will always love you xx

Six years ago at 2 am I lost the best mum, friend, cheerleader...and what I later realised my "right arm" far too soon. She was my/our everything. She made everything complete and happy. I have heard so many people say this..but I really can not believe it has been 6 years. I am sure if I look back on previous messages I say this every year, but I really don't know how I function without her (and to be honest some days I don't or do very badly) and I wish time was the healer people say it can be, but that has not been the case for me. I'm not sure if I am as sad she is missing out on this horrible year, but I still miss her every single day and the pain of losing her and not having her here is still immense. Mum- I love you so much- you were truly special and you meant everything to me. You are ALWAYS in my heart and head. Keep looking over us all- especially dad who I constantly worry about and know is lost without you. Your loving daughter now and always, Sam (i) xx

Another hard month mum, where you’ve been on my mind constantly and I’ve wanted to talk to you so much.. that’s one of the things I find the hardest and most upsetting as there’s such a void no one can fill. Please please keep looking over us.. I love you xx
