Setting Vic free 14.1.2013

Dear God remembering is so hard! I miss my baby girl so much. Will it ever get easier? Will the pain go away?

Vic's Final Journey

I had stopped all visits. It was family time. Our little family united in the trauma of our loved one’s dying.


The boys were back at school on the 9th of January. On Monday, the 14th of January, it was Jon-Daniel’s academic awards evening. Vic had so desperately wanted to attend. The Sunday evening she begged me to please promise her that she would attend. I promised her, knowing that it was a death-bed promise I would not be able to honour.

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.

  1. I’m so sorry, Tersia. I pray your pain eases – I do believe it will get easier for you. But it’s never easy, especially because you were so close with Vic. Your bond was deeper than most people could imagine. That bond is still there and the ache is endless. Keep expressing your pain; grief is lonely. Thinking of you.


  2. i am sorry to say this helped me to read again. we were talking a few nights ago and as my time draws closer i find myself only wanting my love with me. you validate that feeling for me.

    there will never be any words to lessen the pain and for that i feel such sorrow. the thing that heals me is reading how you are having a good time with other family and friends. not that you ever forget her but maybe in those moments you find some joy. you let it in and it becomes you.

    love and hugs
