Bruce called yesterday I could at first not realize what a tragic
and extremely sad message he had. After a few hours having talked
to Monia and read the articles on the internet about the accident
I started to realize what a devastating thing that had happened—probably
the worst thing that can ever happen—losing your child.
very sad and we think of you all the time and I wish I could give
you a big hug and cry out in your arms. I have told Bengt and Gunilla
and they send their condolences and will probably write themselves.
the sadness I am very happy that I had the opportunity to meet Sarah
again after all those years that have passed since you warmly and
lovingly let me stay in your family and that I can remember her for
not only being that lovely six-year old little sister calling me JOOAAANII.
But also for a brave, independent young woman that showed great warmth
and love for me and my family and proudly talked about her work and
her visions. My impression was that she had very much energy and was
taking great responsibility in her work and daily life.
a little question that I overheard when we visited their house. She
was asking Judy: Mom do you think that they i.e. Sandbergs think that
we are very strange living like this?
not remember what Judy answered but I can answer now. Not strange
but not in the way we would choose with three children. And I could
clearly see that that was the way your Sarah liked to live. With Joseph,
an open door, open mind and close to nature. Although I never really
knew you I will always miss you. I will always have good memories
of you as a little sister and a young woman.
told our children and both Jonas and Moa understood that this was
very sad. I told their teachers at school if they start talking about
the accident or get worried.
hard to express what I really feel and I hope I not have written anything
that can be misunderstood. We are thinking of you and if there is
anything we can do please let us know. It felt good to talk to Bruce
although the reason for the call was devastating. I will come to the
U.S.A. to help—if I can, or attend the funeral—if you
want. Please let me know.
I am now sending the biggest hug I have to Judy and to Bruce.
