I received an email from my sister on August 8th, 2012. I had not heard from her in quite some time. The note was brief. In it she wrote:
I don”™t know what to say by way of preamble.
Mum died yesterday at 4 pm.Â She wasn”™t alone — Jessica, her fiancÃ©, my spouse Larry and myself were there to help her on her journey.
My mother died on August 7th, 2012. And it is quite difficult to look back. The hurt and the grief are still very close.
