From wedding to funeral in a fortnight

Words seem meaningless to me at the moment as I struggle to come to terms with the fact that my dear, only sister, has gone. Out of nowhere Emma was diagnosed with a rare strain of acute myeloid leukemia and after a short but fierce battle against this aggressive blood cancer, she died at Princess Alice Hospice on 16th June. The speed that it has happened has shocked me to the core and I can’t see how I will ever move on from this tragedy. The only blessing I cling on to was that she was able to marry Clifford during her final week at the hospice, and that her daughter Alaila got to be with her till the end. Rest in peace beautiful sister.
