Rest in Peace, Yasmina Ykelenstam—Dear Cousin, Friend, Journalist & Author

in esteem •  2 months ago



Gone far too soon... Shocked and deeply saddened to learn (just moments ago) of the passing of my cousin and friend, Yasmina Ykelenstam, at 43 years old, shortly after her birthday. I hope you are at peace, now, brave soul, and free of suffering, finally...

Yasmina was a beauty and a fighter until the end, who worked as a journalist (for BBC & CNN) as well the author of books on the Histamine Diet.

If you care to find out more about her work & life-story, please visit her website (and, perhaps, keep her in your prayers) _/|\_

Here's a short poem of mine dedicated to dear Yasmina who, throughout her short life, dealt with many health complications:

I ran hard and far
to outdistance my pain
But, my pain found me—
caressed me, wordlessly
and carried me Home.

I'm shocked. Her work on histamine issues has been a great help for people struggling with mast cell issues. Ride on, Yasmina


I'm still processing, Sue... Heartening to learn that you are familiar with her work and that it has brought hope and healing to others. She lives on...

My sincere condolences on the loss of your beautiful cousin. She will be in my thoughts and prayers along with your entire family.
