Our brilliant, blazing girl passed this afternoon.
A priest administered last rites in the Catholic faith of her ancestors and of Luc’s family, and she clearly took this as permission and began the dying process on her own. Life support was lifted to aid her body’s intention. We stroked her and gently talked to her while she let go of her life.
She blessed us with her ‘small but fierce’ (her description of herself), spirit, her excellence, discipline, extraordinary intelligence, her multiple talents and her deep, solid devotion to her family, many mentors, her community of friends and fellow lovers of the sea and all things maritime, her dear animal family Laddie and Gideon, and most of all her soul mate, her beloved husband and best friend of nearly half her life, Luc.m
Thank you each and every one for your loving care of us through these last six days. Her life ended so soon, but it was a rich, full, amazing and vital life and she has been thoroughly, deeply loved.
