Geraldine, this is really weird getting a message from you. You actually came into my head a few hours back. I was talking to my aunty about 'forgotten victims'. I feel a bit of an outsider with the whole redress movement.My mother was in St Joseph's, Kilkenney but committed suicide when I was a small boy (so institution for me, but in UK). I always felt that she was forgotten in all of this and didn't survive to see all this happen. Of course, though I lost the most signficant person in my life when I was almost 4, I will never have that recognised by any board as she died before the 'apology'. I read your post about forgotten victims a few weeks ago and it really moved me. I have always felt as if the suffering of those who didn't survive was completely overlooked so it was really heartening to read that. Thank you.
