It is difficult to believe that already 5 years has gone from that dark tragic day 11.11.11.when we lost our darling beautiful friend. But our Svitlanka is still alive in memories of people who knew her, who loved her and who cherish these memories no matter how long ago her human body was destroyed in that terrible accident. Her spirit is still with us, we see her face and her smile, we hear her voice and her laughter and we remember those happy moments we shared with her.
People with long memories on the history of TfL cycle superhighways in Tower Hamlets may recall late 2011 when two cyclists died and one was very seriously injured in the borough, all within a few weeks in late Octorber and early November. The deaths of Brian Dorling and Svitlana Tereschenko (Bow roundabout) and severe injury to Mary Bowers (crossing The Highway on her way to work in Pennington St shortly after leaving CS3) occurred during a period of protest about TfL plans. or lack of, elsewhere that led to the very well attended flash rides over Blackfriars Bridge and the Dangerous Junctions tour (14th November 2011).
11/11/2013 – second anniversary of Svitlana's death. Friends and family come together to remember our beautiful friend, sister and daughter.
Today she would turn 36. And today she is still with us in our memory and in our hearts young and beautiful and always will be! We love and remember you our wonderful friend!
