In Memory of My Beloved Sister

Tomorrow is my sister’s funeral.  After five months bravely fighting one of the most devastating cancers, she died peacefully in her sleep in the early hours of Monday.  A life lived to the full, but cut short at a time when it should still be bursting with promise for a fulfilling future.

But I cherish the days we spent in each other’s company, and the many happy memories she has left behind.  And I was lucky to still see her a few times in those very last weeks, on some of the days when the pain had subsided and things looked a little more positive.

But we both realised that we would not see each other again for a while, so we whispered to each other that we loved each other and that we would meet again, one day, ‘on the other side’.

Orchids, my sister's favourite flowers.
