I am not sure if this is the right place for this but my mum (EMIN) had asked us to keep her mumsnet friends updated on her cancer battle.

I have already posted on the 'cancer' thread but wanted to make sure I had done what she wanted.

Mum - wife, mother of three, foster mother to over 80 children and grandmother of one - passed away peacefully in her sleep at 2:50 this morning. We were all with her, holding her hand and telling her we loved her.

Yesterday all of her family came to visit and they spent time with her, each of them getting their private time to talk to her and just be there with her and for her.

All she had ever wanted was to be at home with her family around her and she got exactly what she wanted. She will be missed so very much and we are devastated that she was taken so early.

She loved to read threads on fostering as babies were her life. She lurked a fair bit and would just offer words of guidance, comfort or encouragement where she felt she could help. In later months as she fought cancer she concentrated more on the cancer thread and I know it gave her some comfort.

She would have been 60 in October and we are devastated she never got to have her big family party but we get some comfort from the fact that all of her loved ones were with her yesterday.

I don't know how many people she communicated with outside of the boards or if any crossedover to real life but if anyone is interested in coming to the funeral once it is arranged then by all means drop me a private message and I can pass on the details.

Thank you Rebecca for sharing.

DaughterofEMIN your family and your wonderful mother are still very much in our thoughts, she has left a hole in the "Tamoxigang" too but nothing compared to the hole left in your family. So many posters remember her threads and she has inspired and supported lots of people on here, so I don't think she will ever be forgotten. Thank you for taking the time to update us. Much love to you all x

RIP, your mum was truly an amazing person, I read one of her threads on fostering months back and instantly recognised the name as it stuck with me due to what an amazing person she was. She seemed so selfless and caring, it's unbelievable that one person has managed to do so much good, for so many people.

You have so much to be proud of her for, she was taken early but she has achieved so much more than many do in a long long life.

I'm so sad to hear about the lovely Emin and for your loss DaughterOfEmin sad I so desperately wanted her to be okay. I hope that you and your family continue to find strength in the outpouring of love for her. She lives on in all of our hearts and when I start fostering I shall be looking to your mum for advice. Thank you mumsnet for keeping Emin with us.

Rest in peace wonderful lady. The world is a better place for having had you in it xxx

Go n-éirí an bóthar leat
Go raibh an ghaoth go brách ag do chúl
Go lonraí an ghrian go te ar d'aghaidh
Go dtite an bháisteach go mín ar do pháirceanna
Agus go mbuailimid le chéile arís,
Go gcoinní Dia i mbos A láimhe thú.
