In heaven

My dad called me at 5 am this morning to tell me that my mother had left us. I don't know what to say right now, more than that my intellect and my soul are not in unison.

I will be leaving for Sweden on Monday.

Hej Esther!

Tänkte fel när jag pratade med dig innan idag. Jag är i Värmland först vecka 10, så jag kommer ner till Falkenberg på tisdag eller onsdag. Vi hörs av!

Kram Karin

Thank you guys! Your comments are heartwarming and it comforts. Although I miss her greatly and have been doing so for quite some time, I am so immensely proud of how she has spent her life, the path she chose and the personal sacrifice she made just to make the word a better place.
