Although I miss my Sister dearly, I know she is in Heaven walking with our Lord in a new pain free body. She is rejoicing that she is with our Mom and Grandparents, her Hubby Dave, her Son Eric, and Dave's Daughter Kathy, and our fur babies Nanette, Muffy and our Scoobie. Our loved ones are catching up, singing and dancing on the streets of gold. I thank the Lord that our last months together were filled with songs, love and laughter. In December, Colbie and I spent days with Bobbie preparing her for Christmas, buying and wrapping her gifts, and talking about all the great times we had around the holidays. Colbie and I talk about that special time a lot, we realized we were blessed beyond measure and have a special memory that only Colbie and I share. We will see you soon Bobbie, what a joyous day that will be. I love you Sis. Thank you for all you did for me, being my big sister. Hugs
