In Memory of Stacey Renee Essman, my older sister and for anyone that has lost a loved one before their time.

Sola's thoughts at her sister's funeral


It seemed as if yesterday we talked, you were so happy.

I walk in your funeral procession numb.

You're unborn child swells inside of you.

It's so hard on all of us.

Already there are rumors about your death and I have shut my heart to them.

Ryoo and Pooja don't quite understand what death is. I am sure that tomorrow they will be asking where you are.

It's so unfair Sister! You were about to become a mother!

I have so many questions to ask you, but they will never be answered now I guess.

Good bye Sister, rest in peace.
