My mum passed away today(I know I have put it on football) 18:42 - Feb 14 with 3021 viewsPJH

It was not a shock because she had been in hospital for two weeks and we were told on Friday morning that she probably only had hours to go, she was also 95.

The reason that I am posting this at all is because I want to thank her and my late dad (he died 8 years ago next month) for introducing me to ITFC.

I might have discovered ITFC anyway but it helped having club supporting parents.

They first took me when I was aged 3 or 4, it could have been either but my first memory of football (and probably anything else) puts it at that time.

I know I was at PR on 22nd March 1958 with my dad because that was when my sister was born and the midwife wanted me and dad out of the way.

I have memories of F.A. Cup games against Luton and Peterborough in 1959 and 1960 and the opening of the floodlights at PR in 1960 but most of my real ITFC memories start with 1961/62- but that is another story

Thanks mum (and dad) RIP

My condolences to you and yours, PJH. A very respectable innings. Although at the minute you wonder whether it was a blessing or a curse to be introduced to us.

RIP Mother PJH.

How lucky you were to have 'both' parents take you to your first Portman Road games way back when and still have the memories! I had neither but still enjoyed the journey, apart from...
My condolences.

And to add, my finger pressed the down button by mistake!!!

Condolences PJH. Just from seeing the title, I’d assumed she had a good innings as I know you remember us from well before the SBR days. And 95 is indeed a cracking innings.

RIP PJH’s mum.

Deepest sympathies to you and family PJH. Your parents obviously had great footballing knowledge. Let's hope at some stage our famous club can start climbing back to those lofty heights.

Sorry to hear your news PJH, while 95 is a great age that never makes it any easier I know.

Most of my football memories strangely also started around that same 61/62 season, going to football with my Dad and Granddad.

Hope you take time out and remember those great memories, there is certainly something special when you all enjoy it together as a family. That's the same for me these days but now its mostly grandkids & great grandkids and that family experience is probably now more important than the football.
