remember her words

Firstly I would like to say that my leg, which I broke in September, is on the mend and I am very happy to be back on my feet. Secondly, for those that don't know, we are now living in the very beautiful Cape Town, South Africa. Even though today the winds are howling and the rain is pouring it's kind of nice as it reminds me of being back in the UK.

So the other day we were going through some stuff and I unpacked some photos of Ellis, the ones from her farewell service. As I hadn't seen these for a while I said something like "Oh hello Yeah Yeah" C√°el promptly turned to me, with a very confused look on his face and said "who's Yeah Yeah? that's Ellis" This totally shocked me as it was the name that he had called her all of his life. It made me really sad that he had forgotten his special name for her. What else will he forget? After all he was only 4 when she passed away.

I think that this is a big fear that I have, that people will forget her and just how amazing she was and the things she went through and achieved in her short life. So I'm going to ask that you read some of Ellis's original posts, to remember her words and the reasons for her starting this blog.
