Support Conor In His Next Step

As a majority of our friends and family know my sister Caroline struggled with mental health issues and depression for a number of years. Usually when she was having a bad episode we managed to pull her through to feeling a little bit better and encouraged her to find the strength to dust herself off and keep going. Unfortunately she started to experience another bad episode and she decided to take her own life. As a family we are completely devastated and distraught that she made this decision and still cant quite believe it. As much as she struggled on the inside, to the world she was the most kind hearted, upbeat, happy go lucky person. She was a fantastic mum,auntie,sister and friend and was always the life and soul of any party. Caroline leaves behind her beloved dog Bonnie and her only son Connor who was without a doubt her greatest achievement in life and a huge credit to her. She was so proud of what an amazing young adult he had become. Caroline didn’t have much money at all but she always made sure Connor didn’t go without, she saved to buy him a designer suit for his prom, saved to throw him a fantastic 21st birthday party and supported him as much as she could through university. Bonnie has taken residency at our home and in a short time she will settle in and make herself at home and will be content. Connor however has much larger ambitions and aspirations for his life than bonnie and we want to do everything we can to support him and ensure he carries on doing his Mum proud Connor is in his last year at Oxford Brooke’s university due to take his exams this May and has his eyes set on furthering his education / career / life experiences abroad. As we have florists in the immediate family the funeral will be filled with gorgeous flowers already from us close family. Our Caroline also didn’t support any particular charities So we as a family have decided to ask those of you who feel you want to, instead of sending sympathy flowers or gifts to any of us siblings or flowers to the funeral we have set up this go fund me page for Connor to give him a helping step in the next chapter of his life whatever that may be This will be hugely appreciated by us as a family, Conor and also I know that Caroline would be touched by this idea
