here is an aura of well being and happiness everywhere I looked..Vimala has five children, her eldest on her right is training as a nurse and the next, 16, is doing well at high school. When I asked her about her life now, an uncontrollable smile swept her face, and was fixed there for minutes.I will think of this Tamarind tree as your Turangawaewae Brian, and your memory will be here forever. My friend, Celeste, and I got together to make our little girlies some cute summer cut-offs with the hole-y jeans.Photo: Bob Mckerrow As I sat under the peaceful Tamarind tree in Kilinochchi, I thought of my dear friend Brian Taylor, and the pain his family must be feeling.Had things worked out, we would have been in Sri Lanka together this month where he would have been coaching young aspirant athletic champions.
This morning on waking up before daybreak, I checked my email before our planned 6.30 am start to Kilinochchi, to discover an email from my daughter in New Zealand. Brian Taylor was in the Canterbury TV building in Christchurch on 22 February when that fateful earthquake occured killing over 200 people.
I always tuck little folds in as I sew instead of gathering it in a gathering stitch. I cut the legs of the jeans off below the holes and then I cut the seams of the jeans about 1/2 inch outside of the topstitched side.
That way the cute topstitching on the jeans still showed on the skirt after it was sewn together.
To Yasuo I send my heartfelt condolences on the death out your beloved Mother.
To Prue Taylor, sons and Suzanne, Brian's sister, I know you came to the realization Brian is dead, but to have found his body, brings the start of closure, but does not ease the pain.
