One day less


I am glad the day is over.  I am grateful that I am one day closer to being reunited with my precious child.

Tonight I fulfilled one more of Vic’s wishes.

Twenty five years ago Vic was the bridesmaid at my brother and sister-in-laws wedding.  She looked beautiful in a real grown-up pink dress…  They gave her a string of perfect little pearls which she treasured and wore on very special occasions.

After Vic died I came across the string of pearls with a little note.

The note read: “25 years ago Johan and Henda gave me these because I was their bridesmaid.  I would like to now return it to them…”

She wrote them a note telling them how much she loved them.  She told my brother that he was her hero.  She told my sister-in-law that she was amazing….

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

    1. Pat, Vic was one of the most beautiful souls that ever graced this earth. I have stacks of little notes she left everywhere for us – almost every day of her life she left the boys a little “I love you” note…

      1. I can see why you miss her Tersia — you were given such a gift and what so many things she must have shown and taught you. Truly a blessing to behold.
