Alison Finnie (McCrostie) (Lauren Finnie)

Hi Alice, Hi everyone – she loves being with you all, there’s a window in the sun she loves to sit there and watch life go on around about her. She is filled with tears at all the generations she’s missed but sees so much of herself and everyone living on. She 100% feels remembered and included and thanks all of you for that. She loves the wine you drink for her then she laughs!
There has been drama and love and more drama. Please don’t think I’ve missed a thing. I am always in your dreams, you just don’t always remember and that’s OK too.
Tell my mum I’ll be waiting for her when the time’s right, it will be amazing to hug my Mum & Dad again. Can you tell your Dad to lighten up again, he’s not old yet! I am always putting songs on the radio for you, it’s not your imagination, and thank you for my family Christmas. I always love it, I always did! This year will be extra special so make it count.
Love you all so much and thanks for always checking in on me xxxx


Her smile is infectious and what she loves the most is how many smiles like hers are around. She held on as long as she could, she really tried and didn’t want to leave you all but the breath just wasn’t there. She is still blown away by how remembered she is and thought of by so many, daily – a huge thank you.

I haven’t missed anything really, you all have done exactly what I wanted and hoped – ‘lived’. I’ll always love your Dad, he was my light through the dark and I’m so glad he’s happy. Yes, we wanted to grow old together but at least I got to stay young (she chuckles).

My beautiful girls, how do I speak to one over the other, I just can’t, I’m so proud of you both. You’ve given your Dad a run for his money. I was exactly the same. You don’t conform, I was exactly the same. You try to fix everyone, yip, I was the same. She’s making me look at my wedding ring as if you still have hers, she loves that there is still so much of her around. Please, when you can, travel more, let me see the world through your eyes. I’m always there just like I promised I would be.

I love you all so much, never ever doubt that, I’m there, I’m always there even when you miss me the most, I’m right there, just feel the warmth behind you, you’ll know it’s me.

Please tell Dad, it’s great to get to know his Mum and I’m with my Gran and Grandad, we have great chats. This afterlife is comforting and you hear me and I love that, thank you. Finally stop worrying about the future, focus on right now. That’s what. I had to learn, be present and the rest takes care of itself. Merry Christmas.

All my love, Mum XXX

P.S. Thank you
