Eternally yours

Further information

The words ‘eternally yours’ were handwritten by my terminally ill friend Elizabeth Caplice, battling cancer at the age of 32. Liz was to spray the text in person, but took a turn for the worse that confined her to bed. Defacing this traditional vanitas is an act of defiance and a tribute to her eloquence and courage.

Elizabeth died at 1.35am on 12 July 2016. She had her parents and closest friends at her side.
