Where I stayed
I am trying to figure out where I was when this happened, as I believe that spirits are connected through time and space. I just discovered that I was getting an elephant bath at Chitwan National Park at that exact time. A lovely elephant was being led by his trainer through our hotel around 11;15am, and we quickly followed him. While watching him bathe her and her really enjoying the experience, the trainer noticed me and said how about a photo.
So, I climbed on the elephant and the next thing I knew, he led me to the river. I spent the next fifteen minutes on the elephant or in the river being bathed by the elephant. I would like to think of this moment as being a time that in Erin’s passing her spirit was somehow celebrated as Erin was someone with an amazing sense of humor and, I think, someone who would have enjoyed this elephant bath as much as I did.
I love her and I will cherish her memory. She is someone who was loved by so many and she was surrounded by loved ones when she passed. I love you Erin!
