Gone but never forgotten.


 My sister has died after being in a coma.  She went as she wanted, quietly with no fuss. I thought I would put a rose here for her but this reminded me more of what we where like as children.  The Ninety Mile Beach in Victoria where it was hot as hell struggling up those damn sand dunes but once at the top, the wind from the ocean gave us an instant freeze. No matter which way we wandered along the waves, coming back it was always straight into the hot sand.  It's a calm photo and I hope she's looking at it and remembering the good times.

Thanks to her friend who held her hand until the last. Thanks to the girls at the Palliative Care Home.

I am sorry to see your post, whilst your sister has gone in peace, you are left with emotion and loss so I sincerely hope you will heal quickly - it's remembering those precious moments that gradually helps us, the hardest thing is letting go, your post says it all, what a wonderful way to be remembered and to mentally release a precious spirit into the wind on that beach. Blessings to you.

Oh gosh. I didn't think it would be so soon. You didn't always agree but hey, she was your sister. Such a loss for you.
