Rory Cowan has opened up his late mother, on the first anniversary of her death.
Last November, 85-year-old Esther sadly passed away at St. Vincent’s University Hospital, surrounded by her loving family.
Twelve months on, Rory admits it’s still hard to come to terms with.
“That year went by so fast. So fast that it doesn’t even feel like a year since my mother died,” he said. “I hate not knowing for sure what happens when you die.”
Sharing a picture of the pair, Rory added, “I love this photo of me and my ma from 2012.”
Earlier this year, Rory released a book in her honour, labelled Mrs Cowan’s Boy.
Speaking to VIP Magazine, he previously said, “The publishers had seen me doing interviews about her and about the dementia and they asked me would I write soemthing with stories about my mother.
“I couldn’t remember what she was like before the dementia. It was the weirdest thing. I couldn’t remember her when I was a kid. So then when I had to work on the book, that helped.
“I had it nearly finished, and then she died, so that put a different ending on it.”
Rory continued, “It’s a horrible thing to see a loved one being so lost to such a disease. I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy.”
