A grieving woman has described how eating her late mum's ashes has helped her to cope since losing her suddenly last year. Debra Parsons, from Folkestone, is facing her first Christmas after the death of Doreen. She was left distraught after she died last year, and the festive period also sees the anniversary of the death of her son in 1996 after he was born prematurely. Debra will scatter the ashes, which she describes as chalky and salty, on her turkey and Christmas pudding, before tucking in.
A grieving daughter will EAT her mum's ashes as part of her Christmas celebrations this year. Debra Parsons plans to sprinkle her mum Doreen's ashes on her Christmas turkey and pudding, as a way to cope with her death. Debra, 41, has felt the urge to consume Doreen’s ashes since she died in May to feel “as close as possible” to her, and has had a small spoonful most days, the Daily Record reports. But the craving has become even stronger as she approaches celebrating Christmas without her mum.

And for dessert she’ll enjoy Christmas Pud...with a dusting of her mum’s last remains too.

But as she faces Christmas without her, the craving has become even stronger.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
