    I am reminded of these words from Ed Sheeran’s Supermarket Flowers:

    Oh, I’m in pieces, it’s tearing me up, but I know
    A heart that’s broke is a heart that’s been loved

    So I’ll sing Hallelujah
    You were an angel in the shape of my mum
    When I fell down you’d be there holding me up
    Spread your wings as you go
    When God takes you back
    He’ll say, “Hallelujah, you’re home”

    You were an angel in the shape of my mum
    You got to see the person I have become
    Spread your wings and I know
    That when God took you back
    He said, “Hallelujah, you’re home”

    Many hearts are broken by the loss of Carol, but we can take comfort that she’s with her beloved husband Tony and daughter Cara.
