Natalie has had to en­dure the pain of los­ing

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Dou­glas Dickie

As well as go­ing through the heartache of find­ing out her baby had a life-lim­it­ing dis­ease, Natalie also en­dured the pain of los­ing her mum.

Rose­mary Howieson, who stayed in Castlemilk all her life, was just 49 when she died in her sleep on Novem­ber 7.

Natalie was ac­tu­ally out cel­e­brat­ing her 30th birth­day with friends the night her mum died.

When she didn’t hear from her mum the next day, she be­came sus­pi­cious.

Rose­mary was later found to have passed away dur­ing the night.

Natalie said:“It’s been the year from hell.

“Mum just went to bed and never woke up. She had car­diac en­large­ment, her heart was just too big.

“She died peace­fully, asleep in her bed, which I sup­pose is the best way to go. That’s cer­tainly how I’d like to go.

“She suf­fered from de­pres­sion and anx­i­ety.

“She was in re­mis­sion from breast can­cer but I think that knocked her for six for a couple of years.

“In two and half years she hadn’t left the house, so I can’t imag­ine that would have helped her heart.”

Wee smiler De­spite her con­di­tion, Cas­sidy is a happy baby
