Last night I went to the memorial service for Iliana, the girl who died in a car crash. Her funeral is Sunday. There was a photo slideshow and a lot of recordings of her voice from the Youth Flex radio show. It was very emotional.
I remember every week at the end of the show she’d almost always say “Granny! I’m coming home! I hope you have some food for me when I get there!” And I’d always tell her after the show “Ili, you shouldn’t say that on the air, it doesn’t sound good” Then the next week, she’d say it again, looking at me, with this twinkle in her eye and this sly smile on her face…. After meeting her Granny, I understand how it was OK for her to say that on the air.
I wish I could experience it just one more time…..
