"It was all a bit too much. The thing about it was that mum kept living her life.

"We were there when she passed and were able to hold her hand. We listened to Fleetwood Mac."

John Grimes then added: "It's very disheartening to think she won't be at our weddings, won't meet our kids, but we always keep her spirit alive."
