Just now, I received the news I’d been dreading. Aunt Brenda passed away on Wednesday evening peacefully in her sleep. My family and I are in very deep shock at the moment. I don’t really know what to say.
She was a very independent woman. It seems strange talking and typing about in the past tense! She was very house proud and she loved to spend time tending to her garden. Her most favourite pastimes were baking cakes and flower arranging.
The last time I saw her was Friday at the hospice. She was laughing and joking like she did not have a care in the world. This is the way she’d want to be remembered, and I intend to.
I’m happy that she is not suffering anymore. I just didn’t expect it to be over so soon. Rest in peace Aunty Bren, you shall be sorely missed.
In Loving Memory of
Mrs. Brenda Rowe
