My dance partner, my cheerleading mentor, my neighbor, my best friend, my other half of a singing duo. My confidant, my advisor, my caregiver. My yin to her yang. Even now, when I feel one of the most important times in my life to do so, I am lacking in words to express how much she meant to me; she, being a wordsmith, would have found it easy. She the fanciful, me the practical.
Whether it was holding my hand while dancing the jitterbug, or reading Kentucky Belle to me over and over, because I asked her, she was my constant, in childhood as well as adulthood. All my life, it has been Mickey, Mitchell, Karen. Even when our brother passed away in 2003, he was still very much a part of our lives because she and I would talk of him often. I fear that that void is too big to fill and will have to remain a hole in my life, for the rest of my life. Several times since she passed, I have wanted to call her and talk to her about how terribly sad I am, but, it's because she is gone, that I'm so sad. Who will know me like she did? Who will know Mitchell like she did? Who will ever know how completely wonderful she was the way that I did. She insisted on sleeping on my couch the night I went into labor with my first child, instead of sleeping in her comfortable bed 2 doors down the street. She bought me my first razor to shave my legs, hoping that she could prevent the taunting that she received as a teen, because she wasn't allowed to shave her legs as early as most of those in her class. She loved to shop, and Ebay and Goodwill were two of her favorite places to find treasures. And that's what it was, a treasure hunt to her, to find those very special items that were buried deep within the piles of junk, to find and gain such treasures at a bargain. She loved her family fiercely, her friends famously, and her home, it reflected her. It was big and grand and gracious and welcoming. When you walked up onto the porch, it was like walking into a movie and she the star. She was the star of her life and we were all content to be supporting actors. I was not ready for this play to end, I was not ready to see the curtain come down. But, she had given us all that she could, but leaving us wanting more.
