My God-mother is being laid to rest today.
The pain I feel at the thought of never seeing her again is unbearable.She has shown me love all my life. She almost delivered me (check my 2020 birthday post), so we go way back. Before ‘day 1’ was even a thing. I still fondly remember the many hugs and encouraging words, the fancy brown shoes she got me when I turned 10 and the chocolate cake when I turned 25! I remember how proud of me she was when I completed my degree and she was there to witness my graduation. We may have had our ups and downs but we shared a special bond.
Lala uphumule Ma.
I am so sorry that I cannot attend your sending off. I love you.
To Bab’ Mshu, bhuti Manqoba and Mafi and sister Tinkie & Gengqe, my heart bleeds for you. I wish to be there and physically comfort you. I feel your pain. I pray that God will give you strength to heal from your loss.
To the St Nivard’s and Himmelberg family, we have been dealt a blow so powerful, it could knock us over. May we fall on our knees to lift the family up in prayer and to ask God to send His angels to carry her soul straight to heaven.
Eternal rest grant unto her oh Lord and may her soul rest in peace. Amen
