General Hospital actress, Sonya Eddy (Epiphany Johnson) is mourning the loss of her dear friend, Vaslin Merricks who died from COVID-19!
What a short word to describe an emotion that is so encompassing. As long as we are breathing, there will be tones of grief that we will experience. Sometimes it’s lingering, and other times it’s quick and sudden, taking breath away.
One of my Dearest friends has moved through the veil. For me, it was unexpected. The last time I spoke with him, I didn’t even consider that it was the last time. For this Man was full of Life, Light, and Love. Yet, I still made sure to tell him that I loved him. That he was gonna beat this. Unfortunately I was incorrect. COVID-19 took my friend’s life. It was decidedly quick. That’s the thing with this virus. It happens so fast, in a moment, it steals you away.
Valsin, I have only Gratitude in my heart that I had the Blessing of You in my life for 10 years. That I got to share some of the “Best days of my life!” with you is a gift that I will forever Cherish.
I will always miss you: your laugh, smile, even the way you sometimes irritated the living daylights out of me. No matter what the situation, I’m so thankful that we always, ALWAYS, left each other with “I love ya...”.
My heart is broken, my spirit is troubled, but through your ever present Enthusiasm, I’ll find my way back to “normal”.
So Now, enjoy your well-earned Rest, Boo Bear.
Know that all your Works will be remembered and celebrated. All of us who loved you are lucky. You taught us how to “Enjoy the BEST day of our lives!” That Blessing phrase will stay in our Spirits as long as we walk.
Thank you for your Continuous Joy and Unbridled Enthusiasm.
People... please take Care of each other, always say “I love you”, even when you find it difficult in the moment.
My Condolences to the Merricks family & friends.
For in a Twinkling of an eye...
We send her our condolences!
