  • Abstract

    Abi talks to her daughter Catherine who passed away in 2011. She describes how she wants people to remember Catherine and how proud she is of her. She recalls the many phone conversations they had and tells her how much she misses her. She also talks about Catherine's older brother, Pax, who died as a young child and who she wasn't able to discuss when Catherine was alive. She describes how she is grieving for Catherine but says that the happy memories bring her joy and that she is glad to have been her mother. She talks about what she is doing to ensure that neither of her children is forgotten.
