What should have been a delightful family Christmas turned into a mother’s worst nightmare when Sue Holland discovered her daughter Claire had died.
The 26-year-old suffered a major seizure at her Brockworth flat in the early hours of Christmas Day.
Yesterday, Sue, also from Brockworth, said: “I’m devastated. I’ve not just lost my daughter, I’ve lost my best friend.
“She was such a lovely, bubbly girl. Claire just had fun and lived life to the full.”
