Isabel ('Izzy') Borau
1989 - 2006
Location Sutton, Surrey
Age 17 years

On November the 10th, 2006, Isabel ('Izzy') Borau was found dead in her Benhill Avenue flat in Sutton, Surrey. She had hung herself. Izzy was only 17 years old, a shining star taken away from us in what can only amount to a moment of madness. Izzy had three older sisters, Emily(me), Anna and Jenny, and a younger brother, Hannes. Peter, Izzys dad committed suicide in 2005. Kate, Izzys mum lives in Sutton with Jenny and Hannes.

So many people have asked me to create a website for Izzy. More recently we have experienced a double tragedy as Anna took her own life on January 11th. There is a separate Gone Too Soon website for Anna, please visit it.

Nothing compares to the pain of losing a loved one to suicide, but by creating this site I hope I can reach out to others who knew Izzy, and let them know that they are not alone.

Do not stand at my grave and weep...
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awake in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft star-shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry...
I am not there... I did not die.
