The article provides information on the author's experience of accepting the death of her daughter. September is the death anniversary of her daughter. Four years after her daughter had died, she found herself wondering just when her grief would finally ease. Lately she had been praying, in a sort of incoherent way, not to lose her daughter again to the fading of memory. Her daughter was no longer on earth, but she had not faded away.
