These are my sisters Martha (on left) and Lou, pictured together over ten years ago now. Martha passed away after a decade long battle with breast cancer in December 2011 aged 46, and Lou also left us suddenly in July 2013, aged just 49. I am part of a big family with eight children (I have six sisters and one brother) and both our parents are still with us. We are comforted that Martha and Lou are together again now up in their new home in heaven.
There is so much I could say about each of them, but I will keep it to these few words to describe who they were…. Martha was sparkling, creative, wise, chatty, courageous and expressive. Lou was a deep thinker, intelligent, graceful, wise, kind and gentle. Both sensitive and special in their own way. Both much loved by many.
I think the best way to capture the essence of Martha and Lou is in these YouTube clips I put together for each of them after they passed away. Rest in peace girls. You will always live on in our hearts!
