Mum feels ‘numb’ on anniversary of death of her daughter who never came home from music festival

by Henry James (August 2022)

THE mother of a 20-year-old Edge Hill student who died in a road traffic accident on the way to the Creamfields festival in 2009 has spoken of the numbness she still feels as the 13th anniversary of her daughter’s death approaches.

Dominique Williams, from Maghull, and her friend Nicola Edgar, 19, died when the car they were travelling to the festival in suffered a puncture and flipped onto its roof on August 29, 2009.

Dominique had been a dance and performing arts student at Edge Hill University in Ormskirk.

Her mum Lesley Williams wrote on Facebook: “It’s so strange as some days, I don’t know what I am feeling and today is one of them. I feel like everything is out of sync, maybe because the anniversary is approaching again.

“It’s hard to try and explain these feelings when they do come. It’s almost like feeling suspended, and a feeling of being numb.

“To think it’s been 13 long years since I sat and spoke with you, Dom.

“Then it feels like yesterday when you left and then you were gone. How can things seem so mixed up? It’s like opposites work in sync.

“It seems as if everything changes every time that I blink. I know that I am doing my best and I don’t know what else to do.

“It seems like something blocks me when I feel I am getting through.

“My heart was broken the day you left and the pain is still so raw. Every day, my only wish is that you will come through the door.

“So another anniversary and I wonder what to do. I wish I could do something to let you know how much I love you.

“Wherever you are, my special girl, please know a part of me is there too.

“I will always keep your memory alive no matter what else I do! I love you, Dom.”
