Mourners will wear bright colours when they say goodbye to tragic mother Lydia MacDonald at Perth Crematorium on Friday.
The 28-year-old was found dead at her flat alongside her three-year-old son Mason, who had survived on his own in the property for at least two days.
Grandfather Ron MacDonald said the youngster is recovering well at the home he shares with Lydia’s mother, Linda, in Scone.
He said Mason has been told his mother is now a star in heaven.
“He still asks for his mum now and again and that is really heartbreaking for us,” he added.
It was confirmed last night that Lydia died from a severe asthma attack.
Dundee-born Lydia who attended Meigle Primary and Blairgowrie High School, had suffered from asthma since the age of two and her family has called for ambulance three times in the past due to her attacks.
