Although, we are far apart, I will cherish our memories. The loss of my sister has left a hole in my heart. I cannot think about this loss as it makes me so sad and physically sick. I remember my little sister sitting in my lap when you were five or holding your hand when you were sick in your twenties. I remember all the Thanksgivings at your and Leonard's home and fun get togethers, or how we sent our eldest boys off to walk the Appalachian Trail when they were fifteen years old. I remember you healthy. I know you had a wonderful marriage and lots of love and beautiful life. I only wait to see you in Heaven and hold hands again my sister. I know God has made a beautiful star with your lovely spirit. I will not say goodbye. I miss you so much.
