Celebrating My Past Love ones
There is a time in life for everything…. I know it is hard to accept that our love ones will die, however
it is something that will eventually happen, because death is a part of life. Many of you have lost someone one way or the
other, through death, sometimes it is though tragic circumstances and other times it is peacefully, we mourn and even though we mourn, there has to be a time when all the mourning stops and the memory of our loves ones
are celebrated . We can’t morn forever and so we remember them in the ways they brought joy to our lives. For me these
are the people who’s life I now celebrate.
To My Aunt… Adassa Bygarve. The lady we called aunt Dal… for many years I thought I would not have
gotten over her death. I was only a teen when she died but the memory of her suffering liger in my head for many years, she
was a person who loved to laugh and give jokes, I remember her smiles and the way she would talk to me, the things she would
say and for some reason I always remember her wearing this beautiful pink floral dress. I also remember that cold Saturday
night in January when she passed on, gone away to be with the father, I bless
God for the good times we shared and that great and bright memories of her still lives on me.
To My friend Rowna who died of leukemia at and early age of 12. The memories of us playing and laughing together
is a joy for me to think about.
To my dear friend Karen who was raped and murdered at age 14. the memories of her live on, and to her sister
Amanda who was my best friend who committed suicide shortly after. I couldn’t understand why you left me so soon and
why you decided to go at all, but the time has come that I had to let go all
that I have questioned and all the pain that I felt due to the devastation that
took you both away from me. However the memories we shared and the good times we had still linger in my heart and will always
do. May all your souls rest in peace.
