My precious Angel Child

Two years ago I lay next to you listening to your laboured breathing. You lay motionless in your bed. Your hands and feet were ice-cold. Your body was burning up with fever. Daddy and I counting the seconds between your breaths. My hand on your little heart and my head next to yours.

I remember whispering how much I love you; that there was nothing to be scared of…I felt your heart beat getting weaker and weaker; your breathing becoming more shallow by the minute.
When your little heart stopped beating my heart broke into a million pieces. As your soul soared mine plummeted into a hell hole of grief and despair.

I knew that it would be hard but nothing in the world could have prepared me for the pain that followed. My heart aches for you and I would give anything to hold you one more time. To hear that mischievous giggle…

We miss you so much. Our family will never be the same again.

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. Bless your heart. I was a loyal reader on your journey and my heart broke along with you. Next month will be 4 years since my son when on his last journey.

  2. Thinking of you, Tersia. Vic was such a precious daughter – but you were and are an amazing mother. She would be very touched knowing how you’ve kept her memory alive. I know she is watching over you.

  3. Tersia, I have my candle burning in memory of your beautiful daughter, Vic. There are no words which adequately express my deepest sympathy. Nothing prepared us to be here without Vic and Amy.

  4. Two years, such a short a time and yet so long. Love is eternal and you and Vic are always together there. It doesn’t help the now that is here, I know. Sending you a warm hug and thank you for posting the beautiful photos.
