Lorraine said: “Mum always puts everyone before herself and has gave up work to look after my dad who has Parkinson’s.

“She cares for my dad by herself and tries her best everyday.

“Mum and dad have been married since they were teenagers and they’re in their 60s now.

“Mum worked at Netherton Care Home and loved it there. She has always been a very caring person.

“She is always the one asking everyone how they are and helping out when she can.

“Mum truly is an inspirational woman who I look up too.

“She deserves the flowers to show how much she means to us all.”

Isabel and Edward have three daughters – Lorraine, Leeanne and Jackie – as well as doting on her many grandchildren.

We were delighted to help Lorraine and surprised Isabel at her home in Muirhouse with a beautiful bouquet of flowers thanks to our friends at Pixie’s Petals in Newmains.

Lorraine added: “She just love spending time with her grandkids.

“We are always up at the house and mum can’t do enough for us. She’s just a very special lady.”
