A Beautiful Mind and Soul: RIP Dear Vweta

Our Dear Vweta
Our Dear Vweta: RIP, Love! (1/1)

Oh, beautiful, talented, always willing to help, hard working, gentle, outspoken, driven, and tenacious Vweta. I’m still wondering what happened to you and what your last memories were, but I am very grateful that you slipped away from all your trials and tribulations silently in the night, presumably peacefully. I hope your beautiful body, and soul, is finally getting the rest that it sorely needed, knowing that you’ve easily fulfilled your mission here for this lifetime. We all know, and acknowledge, just how much you’ve done and contributed, and how much you’ve touched everyone so much with your work, words, and beautiful soul.

I so wish we could’ve met. Even though I often didn’t hear from you for long periods of time, I respected, and loved, your indomitable spirit so much. I thought you would ultimately rally through because of it. I was more surprised to hear that you hadn’t. I kept thinking every time I wrote, or spoke to you, “Wow, I would really love to know this woman more.” But now, unfortunately, I won’t have that opportunity, and honor. My opportunity to have met you in person last summer didn’t happen, for which I sorely regret, even more now.

I loved that you were always so willing to help with the preliminary planning, registration, and Worth grant application for Liluye (my organization). You were always so sweet, resourceful, and hard working. I will be forever grateful that last June you wrote such a powerful speech about the stats behind human trafficking and represented Liluye, and your organization (Project ASHA), at the Cambridge Centre for Applied Research in Human Trafficking (CCARHT) annual summit.

In your last post on World Pulse (November 26, 2018), you wrote an ever-eloquent, powerful, and inspiring post about making your health a priority so that you could continue to “save the world.” I was so amazed, and humbled, that you had credited me in this post for helping you through a difficult period.

I sincerely hope we can meet in person the next time, and that you can continue to help save the world. For now, we all love and miss you very much. You, and all your wonderful work, will not be forgotten.

Namaste, Vweta, Love. Namaste. Rest in peace. You truly deserve it!

In so much love, peace, and respect for you,

Jill

Reader’s note: I found out about Vweta’s passing from a Facebook post by World Pulse sister, Nakinti, on July 25th. Thank you Nakinti for letting us know. We appreciate it. It couldn’t have been easy to convey this message. Vweta is a long-time, World Pulse sister. She joined our community in March, 2013.

This is the post I referenced above, i.e., her last post on the forum: https://www.worldpulse.com/community/users/vweta/posts/89260

Dear Jill,
Your beautiful Ode to Vweta does her such deserved honour and keeps forward in our minds and hearts, and in the minds and hearts of the who were not aware of her and of the work of this dear sister. It is so important that we continue to speak of the work that has been done by sisters who we have lost.
When I learned that Vweta had been to COADY for leadership training here in Canada I wrote to say how if I had known, I would have driven the 12 hours to meet her. She wrote back that just knowing that meant a lot to her. From then on we had closer contact. These chance extra connections are what World Pulse sister bonds are made of. I mourn the loss of our beautiful Vweta, and thank you for this honouring of her, her life, her work, her dedication to change.

Hello Lovely Tam:-)

Thanks so much for reading, and commenting on my ode! I appreciate it.

I'm glad to hear that my post appropriately honored our dear Vweta. Aw, that's so sweet about your connection. Thanks so much for sharing. I agree that we're all making such amazing, and powerful, connections every day, that will last a lifetime.

You're very welcome!

Oh! This is painful. A loss to the sisterhood, but gain to the saints. She made such a strong impact during her lifetime. Half of her short life was dedicated to helping others. She was so full of life and kept beating the odds to shine strongly in spite of her failing health, winning several awards which spoke to her selfless service.

We pray that our beautiful sister's soul finds sweet repose-amen. Hopefully, the ripple effect of her works would keep her memory alive. On Thursday the 20th of August, 2020, her body would be committed to mother earth. It is a free online event where we can honour our dear sister. I just registered through her website.

Thank you so much for the warm tribute, Jill. Thank you for caring and sharing.

Her life just makes one want to live, and not waste time sitting around trying to be polite or agreeable. Even now, she speaks. Rest well Vweta in the Father's Light.
Thank you Jill for honouring one who truly lived her life for others. It is a sad way to meet, but I am glad to know how she lived, and to know her work which lives on to accomplish what she envisioned.

Sending hugs to you dear Jill :)

Dear Sis Jill,
A beautiful ode to a very special sister.

I didn't get to meet her that much, but I always admired her mind.

The world lost a beautiful soul and world pulse lost a beautiful and inspiring sister.

She will be sorely missed.

Hugs to you.

And you, dear. Thank you!

Hello, Jill,

Thank you for honoring Vweta with your love and tribute. It's a sad news that another World Pulse sister is no longer with us. I didn't know her thar much, and yet I mourn. She had done so much with her limited time. I'm happy that the two of you have a strong friendship. and she helped you with Liluye.

It's painful to lose another sister. Thanks for this message of love.

Dear Vweta, we will remember your name.

Hello Again:-)

You're welcome! Yes, she did do an awful lot. I couldn't believe it when I read on her family's post that she was only 33! Incredible. Thanks for reading, and for your empathy, too, as always!

That memory of her lives on. She will always be part of you and Liluye.

Wow! She’s done a lot. Gone too soon. :(

You’re welcome, JLo!

Yes, it does. What a lovely, online memorial service they had for her yesterday. It was well thought out, and I really felt like I was a part of saying an official "good bye" to her. Someone had made a beautiful "SHERO" wreath for her.

Yes, she will be. I know.

I was there, too, Jill. I'm glad I was able to witness Vweta's life through the slideshow of her impact in photos and music.

Oh, cool. What did you think? Yes, it was lovely, I thought. I'm glad you joined in.

Hope you and your family are doing well, and having a good weekend!

I joined early so as the video started, I could see the number of Zoom participants growing from less than 20 to almost 200 (I didn't check on the later part anymore). I saw your name there, but I wonder why there was no chat option.

It was a mixed emotion for me, but I'm very proud of the life she lived when I saw the photos. She's a great loss, but sometimes death can be a wake-up call for the living to pursue our life calling.

Yes, I'm glad I did. It's my way of honoring her even when we don't know each other. I'm glad she wrote stories here. Her posts are her legacy, among others.

Thanks! Have a great week ahead! Hope you join us at our Encourager Party this Friday!

Oh, I see. Yes, the attendance was amazing.

I think they disabled the chat so there weren't any interruptions. Too bad they did mute everyone, too, but oh well. It was still a nice ceremony.

Yes, I think Vweta would love that you saw, or thought, that her death would be a wake up call to others to life their lives more fully:-)

And, yes, on honoring. That was sweet that you attended. Yes, on her stories, too.

Thank you. You, too!

Yes, I plan on joining the Encourager Party... see you there!

I think so, too. It is.

Awww. I wish I knew her. You're welcome, JLo. Yey! See you this Friday!
