I wrote this lament for my sister, Rebecca, shortly after she died in 2012.HM-logo-banner-21It’s taken two years of revision and submission to find a place for it in Hippocampus Magazine, for which I’m very grateful.

I can’t say I hope you’ll enjoy this piece, but   I hope it will trigger memories of someone you’ve loved and lost. And, for those of you who knew    Rebecca, I hope it will help you remember her persistence, her spirit, and all the other things that were wonderful about her!
