Actress and writer, Keira Hewatch has announced the paddage of her mother, Mrs Elizabeth Hewatch, who died yesterday April 19.
he 35-year–old shared the sad news on her official Instagram page on Tuesday, saying though she knew her mother would not live forever, but ahe never thought she’d lose her now.
She however remains grateful to have spent the time she did with her.
Her post reads: “At roughly 5pm yesterday afternoon, the 19th of April 2021, I heard these words as clear as day “…no signs of life…. I’m so sorry for your loss.”
I remember my voice dropped. I asked the doctor on the phone with me; “Are you absolutely certain, sir?”, “Yes.”
“You did EVERYTHING.”I insisted, my voice low, deceptively calm. “Yes.” Came the response…my heart went out, my legs gave out… Seated on the floor, and at that very moment staring at this photograph of my mother which was in my direct line of sight coincidentally, the dead phone limp in my hand, I whispered … “Mom?” I haven’t called her that since I was a teenager. And then the song she sent to me on Sunday FLOODED through me so I got up, stood in the center of the room and sang it for all I was worth. The most befitting tribute to come to mind in that very moment. I knew my mother would not live forever, but I NEVER thought I’d lose her NOW. Not now?! Not when the doors she kept praying for are about to open FOR HER. I know I’m not yet grieving, not really, too much to do, too much to get done. But the tears won’t stop, even when I’m clear headed and focused on the task at hand. I’m not even sure I’ve fully processed this. It feels like I woke up in an alternate reality where the storyline of my life is different from the one I know it’s supposed to be. Whatever the case, I am grateful to have spent the time I did with you Umma, it was the universe aligning the stars just the way they were supposed to be. I’m glad I had the month I did with you. To bond, to love up on you and sit up nights, dreaming about the future and reminiscing about the past and the beautiful spots of light and love we had been blessed with along the way. I WILL NOT mourn you in sadness or pity, but I will uphold the legacy that you’ve inspired. You are the strongest woman I know. The strength of my mind, I know without a doubt comes from you. Rest now, God’s favorite warrior. I love you forever. @elizabethhewatch ❤️❤️❤️
