Happy Birthday Jared

One year ago Vic was around to celebrate Jared’s birthday.  It was a milestone filled with sadness.  We all knew that Vic would not celebrate his next birthday.

I am a sixty plenty 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. I am so sorry for your loss. I understand the pain of mourning a child as well. My son died 7 years ago at the age of 28 on December 22nd. He was physically challenged from birth with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy and I was his advocate for 28 years.

    It was very difficult to cope for several years. My life was no longer busy caring for him and didn’t know what to do without him. I am using his memories to go forward with an art career and writing his book to honor his life. It is now comforting and I feel him with me guiding my life helping others to heal from life challenges.

    Stay strong and take care…..Judy


    1. Thank you Judy! I think that emptiness is the worse! For 38 years my daughter consumed my mind, thoughts, soul and now just nothing! I too have started writing a book to honour Vic’s suffering. I also started a Hospice in Vic’s honour. It keeps me going. It no good comes from her suffering it would have been senseless. Hugs


  2. These are beautiful photos, Tersia, to be treasured.

    Happy new year. I really do wish you more peace this year, joy. Sincerely, Noeleen
