A daughter has paid a heartfelt tribute to her beautiful mum who put others first despite battling her own demons.
Courtney Fisher from Ayr tragically lost her mum Lorna Fisher on Hogmanay due to liver failure.
Her mum was rushed into Ayr Hospital after her skin began to turn yellow on December 21.
Sadly Lorna from Mossblown lost her fight with the disease brought on by alcohol addiction, aged 48.
Courtney, 27, who is a yoga instructor, has told how her mum, despite years of suffering, always tried to care for others.
Courtney told Ayrshire Live: “My mum passed away from an illness that she couldn’t recover from“
“She started to take a turn for the worse just before Christmas, her skin began to turn a yellow colour.
“She had been diagnosed with liver failure related to alcohol dependency.
“She never had it easy, she lost her mum, sister and brother when she was really young.
“But despite her struggles she was the most caring person you could ever meet.”
“In November my dog Winnie died, she loved Winnie who was only two-years-old. They were the best of pals.
“Going out with Winnie would make her feel so much better it would get her out of the house, things changed after she passed.
“I think deep down this world was no fun for her anymore, she is now back with everyone she loved and has missed for far too long.
“It kind of makes sense that Winnie went to heaven last month, she knew she had to be there to meet mum.”
Courtney noticed that her mum started to go downhill following the death of Winnie and struggled in her final few months.
She added: “My mum changed at the end of her life, we didn’t recognise her anymore.
“We don’t want to remember her in that way.
“In my eyes she was the best person ever, she was the most caring person you could ever meet.
“She was the life and soul of the party.
“She would help care for all the kids on my street, she was like another mum to them.
“She has always been a single mum and I think she missed me being a kid, so when I started to get a bit older she would look after other children.”
Lorna worked as a carer at Temple House nursing home in the village before moving into home caring.
