I wish I could build a Grand Palace of temples in honour of my baby; a memorial so spectacular that it would be visited by millions. All these people would know that there was once a little girl called Isobel Olivia Salter, that she was important, that she was loved. The world would not forget her.
Isobel didn’t get the chance to impact the world in the usual way, but I am determined that we who have been irrevocably changed by her will find ways of doing good in her honour. Her little life will in some small but meaningful ways change the world for the better. I have some ideas about this already and look forward to developing them as my capacity to function slowly returns.
