Please can anyone ID this precious plant?

Can anyone out there ID this plant for me? It if of huge sentimental value as it belonged to my mum who was given it by a great friend. Both my mum and her friend have since passed away. The plant wasn't regularly watered while my mum was very poorly and it almost died. I removed the dead and dying leaves to give it a fighting chance and fortunately it has sprung back. If anyone can ID it for me I'll be able to care for it properly. Many thanks everyone. (Sorry if it's an obvious plant - I'm a beginner gardener!)
I've had one forever - It lives on a south facing windowsill behind the curtains (so it gets enough dark to trigger flowering around Easter)
Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
(apologies if this is an old wives tale - my Mum always grew them and would say this).
Sorry to hear about your mum and friend
...oh and whomever said about not turning them whilst buds appear - absolutely. I touch mine as little as possible when it's in bud. Sometimes I give it a mist. I water it about once a week in Summer (very little) and less in winter. Soil is very gritty and free draining. I feed all my succulents very few months or so.
