Oh! Death Stings so Hard

I heard the news; tears flood my eyes.

I was expecting it because the doctors told us, her time was fast slipping away. Still my heart jolted, I was numb and my mind is stilled scattered by the news – she is no more.

My sister friend of 48, breathed her last and ended her battle with that beast cancer after 15 years. Gone too soon indeed. We cherish her memories and her legacy in her two brilliant girls, now young ladies of 18 and 20. Words can’t describe the loss of a mother much less losing her days before Mothers’ Day. Sigh!

She lived life out loud. She inspires me to do the same. My friend walk good as we say in Jamaica. Gone but never forgotten.
