I am a sixty something wife,mother, sister, grandmother and friend. I started blogging as a coping mechanism during my beautiful daughter's final journey. Vic was desperately ill for 10 years after a botched back operation. Vic's Journey ended on 18 January 2013 at 10:35. She was the most courageous person in the world and has inspired thousands of people all over the world. Vic's two boys are monuments of her existence. She was an amazing mother, daughter, sister and friend. I will miss you today, tomorrow and forever my Angle Child. https://tersiaburger.wordpress.com

  4. Ai vir elke Mamma wat haar kind aan die dood afstaan is dit seer sekerlik die moeilikste ervaring en ek glo dat ek nie die vaagste benul het daarvan nie maar vandag gee ek vir jou herinneringe van ‘n leeftyd, onthous van mooi gesonde dae die groei van ‘n diep liefde in beskerming Dan die terugblik op die mooiste blom in jou lewe wat jou nooit sou wou verruil nie Ek kan jou nie troos nie en ek kan ook nie weet hoe swaar dit vir jou is nie maar elke traan wat jy stort was daai vreeslike lyding skoon en gesond Ek bid vir jou en onthou deur die seuns sal jy elke dag vir Vicky sien en beleef dis die troos wat ek jou kan gee Ek is baie lief vir jou

  6. Tersia, this has been a tremendous path that you all walked, may I just add by quoting from Angel Messages ; “After a storm, the sun shines forth brightly ~ such is the wisdom of the Universe. After an ordeal, the soul shines forth brilliantly ~ such are the blessings of the Universe.” Vic is at peace now and suffers no more. Take care of yourself now.

  7. Dear Tersia, thinking of you and the boys. No-one could have done more than you did.
    Vicki has run her race.and you were there with her all the way. Now as she enjoys the next adventure, I hope you and the boys can give yourselves time to grieve and recover at your own pace. You need to care for yourselves now – with love

  8. What can I say? You must be so proud of her, and now, as others say, you must think of yourselves. You must be kind to yourselves. Forgive me for speaking from my own experience, which is so much less harrowing than yours, and about something you almost certainly know already, but it will be natural for the boys to feel an unreasonable anger as well as grief when a parent dies and they may need to be told it is normal. Thinking of you all in your loss.

  10. Tersia I am so glad that Vic’s suffering is over and that she is in a better place never to be restrained again by a failing body. My heart goes out to you and Vic’s sons and extended family. You did everything you could to make Vic comfortable and meet her emotional needs. Now it’s time to focus on yourself and the boys. I pray that God will grant you all the peace that surpasses all understanding during the days ahead.

  21. Dear Tersia, I am so sorry for your lost. What a beautiful picture of Vic and such a strong and beautiful woman she was. She got her strength and will from you all. Although, Vic is no longer here, she has left an impact and she will never be forgotten. It took such strength, courage and humility to share all she and your family were going through and I honor you and your family for it.

    May Vic rest in peace and may you all find the strength within to carry on.

    God Bless!

  22. Tersia sweet lady, my heart was broken as I finally got to look at wordpress & see how you all were doing. I’m praying for you all in Jesus’ name! As I watch my little mother wither away right before my eyes, my heart goes out to you all, as you completed this journey with your precious child, & mother. Thank you for sharing your lives with so many. You make a difference in this old world, and it is a better place for having had your Vicky in it, and you all.

  23. Dear Tersia,

    Our internet has been down off and on much of the last few days, so I just saw today that your precious girl is no longer with you here on earth. I just wanted to let you know that, even though we didn’t have internet, you crossed my mind many times over the past few days. Now I know why. You are in my heart and in my prayers. I haven’t watched a child die nor felt the unspeakable frustration of not being able to do anything about it, so I won’t say “I know how you feel.” But, as you know, we lost our precious boy in an instant when he was killed by a drunk driver….so my thoughts and prayers are with you with empathy and understanding of what it’s like to have to learn to live without a child. I wish I could step through the computer screen, give you a huge hug, and listen to you tell me about your girl.

    With prayers and hugs,
    Becky
