Yesterday’s report on the letter found in a bookshop in Bishop Auckland, that had been written by a mother who was dying, has a happy (or as happy an ending as possible, in the circumstances).
Bethany has been found and the letter and accompanying photo returned to her.
Bethany Gash is a 21 year old woman living in the north east of England and her mother has also been named as Mrs Lisa Gash, who tragically passed away in 2001.
The BBC reported the outcome of the story, mentioning how pleased and overwhelmed Bethany was to be reunited with the precious letter and photo.
It’s a bitter sweet ending to this story, but I hope that Bethany can take comfort from the letter and photo. She has spent most of her life without her mother and therefore, I can imagine that anything from her will be very important to her.
I would just like to pass on my best wishes to Bethany, who I hope, as per her mothers wishes, that she lives a long and happy life. As for Mrs Gash, I hope you rest in the peace and light of heaven.
