Oh Julia, I’m so sorry to hear about Susan. I have just read these posts and am so sorry for your loss and also that I didn’t check these posts sooner.
Although I only met Susan once I thought she was a lovely, interesting, vibrant woman and also a very brave and determined one. I know you will miss her terribly and I hope you have a lot of support from your loved ones. You were an amazing support to Susan throughout her illness and I could tell from that one meeting that she thought the world of you as you did of her. If you would like to meet up for a coffee and a chat at some point, I will be there.
With much love
Julia, I am sure that SUsan loved every minute and that she is so very proud of you!
Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn’s rain,
When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die. By Mary Elizabeth Frye

Today we celebrated my sister, Susan’s life in STYLE; with colours, textures, smells, laughter, tears and very, very much love. Thank you to everyone who came, to everyone who sent messages, cards, mementos and flowers and to everyone who thought of her/us today. Thank you xxx
Dearest Julia, Susan will be greatly missed. Take comfort in knowing you gave her “sunshine and freedom and a little flower” everyday you cared for her. We would all love to have a sister like you.
May Susan be relishing in the sunshine and freedom now.
Love and hugs. Nancy
