LAST month The Sunday Times and PerthNow launched a competition asking West Australians to send us a “Letter To Mum” – to write some words about their magical matriarch who has guided them, supported them, protected them, loved them.
We were inundated with entries. Some made us laugh out loud, others broke our hearts and there were a few that made us shake our heads in wonder. It is obvious that here are many much-loved mums out there, and all of them seem to be truly amazing.
Today we publish our five winning responses and a selection of other letters from sons and daughters who want everyone to know how specials their mums are.
