"Being Alive" Composed by Kevin Rix for Audiomachine Orchestra. From their
album: Magnus. 2015.
A composition Donna enjoyed for its "Majesty".
And a painting I did in 2016. About a year before Donna Darkwolf took off.
She had asked me how I envisioned the 'Undiscovered Country' that we had discussed.
I imagined Donna like this - Arriving in the Undiscovered Country.
I knew then that it would, one day, grace the pages of my Shiny Wife's Digital Memorial.
I also never imagined a day would come when my whole Soul would be sucked out of my body, at the passing of my Only Love and Beautiful Friend.
However, I never imagined that I would use this magnificent and magickal Hymn to Boundless Glory, that Donna so enjoyed listening to.
When she played me this composition, Donna told me: "This! Is A song of Heroism. Bravery. Immutable Grace and Immortal Love".
She said: "Imagine having ALL of this . . . It is not enough . . . Not if there is no one to share it".
I think it so personifies all that Donna Darkwolf is.
GLOWING! Like Gentian Violets in the Morning Dew.
Donna picked up her shield and her weapon - as a true warrior - and set
out across the Undiscovered Country, knowing that the Mission of the Voyager
is never over.
The Mission parameters may change occasionally. Yet, not the destination.
Hail and fare thee well - our Beloved Darkwolf >>
By strange coinidence I had painted TWO suns in the sky - never knowing that one day she would tell me: "Find me on Sirius".
Sirius is actually TWO stars Sirius 'A' and Sirius 'B'.
"Who from the sacred
Ashes of her honour
Shall star-like rise in
Fame as she was
And so, stand fixed".

All of Donna's friends and collegues who could make it to Cape Town, came
to bid their Darkwolf a great farewell. Befitting for a Wolf.
Here are their wishes for The Donna Darkwolf.
5 August 2017
Donna's note attached to the Little Mermaid I had to Un-wrap at her Send-off. My own words, that I told her so often...
The cover of Donna's Farewell Register, in her "own hand writing". Copied by me for the purpose of the guests who would recognise it as Donna's.
All laid out on Donna's star map of 'Orion's Belt'.
Oriented so as to be pointing to Sirius at that time of the morning - and aligned with the Pyramids of Egypt.
The opposite side of the table is facing North towards Cairo and Gizah Plains.
I had everybody line up on the sea-wall. Donna's Ashes are at the far end of the line. She will be passed hand-to-hand. Everyone will have a moment to say a few words, before passing them on towards me, taking this photo.
Donna Darkwolf, aged eight. Already with the eyes of Wisdom.
She is not looking AT you. She is WATCHING you.
Assessing your Spirit.
Weighing your Heart with her Feather of Ma'At.
