In memory of…

A very special lady…my sister, my friend!

Aug. 7, 1954 - Aug 1, 2002

Aug. 7, 1954 – Aug 1, 2002

Miss you, miss your smile.  I can’t believe it has been 11 years since we last talked on the phone.  It seems like it was just last week.

The time has gone by, and so much has changed, but my memory of you is still the same.  You were my protector, my friend, and my confidant.  We laughed and we cried together, and sometimes, we even laughed so hard, we cried.

Oh how I wish you were here, so that we could share these days together.  The days of our empty nest, and amazing grandchildren. The days we talked about so much, and we were so looking forward to going through together.

Sharing in each others joy and crying on each others shoulder, talking and listening and learning from each other. And don’t forget…laughing too! Lots of laughing I’m sure!

But for reasons I will never understand this side of heaven, it just didn’t work out that way.

So on this day, as well as many others, I remember you and the very special person you were to me and to the world!

You will always be in my memory, and forever in my heart.

Thank you for your unconditional love to me.  I love you!

  1. I am sorry for your loss. Birthdays are hard. My moms birthday would have been tomorrow. She passed away last year. Missing family with you, may God bring us both peace…

      Ohh, and I am so sorry for your loss. I hope that you have some good memories of your mom that you can dwell on. Some days are better than others, but it is still just so hard. I know that God has given me peace when I need it the most, I trust that you have felt His presence and His peace as well. Thank you so much for sharing those kind words with me. I know it was heartfelt, and it means so much to me.
      Remember the good times, and hang in there.

  2. It’s always hardest on an anniversary. Peace be with you.

    • Becky says:

      Thank you – I try to just remember the good times I had with them, and think about those on the anniversary days. It brings me comfort and peace.
      I appreciate your kind words, it helps to make the day a little better too! 🙂

    I clicked on the tag and read your other entries, but I don’t see where you explained how she left so early. Do you mind sharing her story with us?

    • dogear6 says:

      I did enjoy reading your other posts of you enjoying her family and commenting on the events she would have enjoyed.

      • Becky says:

        Thank you – she would have LOVED being a Grandma! She was so thrilled to be a Mom – can’t even imagine what she would have thought about being a Grandma! 🙂

      I don’t mind sharing her story with you at all…she died from a pulmonary embolism, blood clot in her lung. Not really sure how it happened, it seems that she must have had a blood clot in her leg that broke loose and travelled to her lung. By the time she got to the hospital, there was nothing that could be done to save her. Once it got to her lungs, she was gone within a matter of minutes. It was all very strange and surreal. I had talked to her the night before, and then the next day, I’m told that she has died.
      Hard to wrap my head around it some days, but…my God gives me peace, and I I know that she’s safe in His arms. 🙂
      Thank you for asking, and thank you for caring enough to ask!

    I am sorry you lost your sister so soon, before your many plans were fulfilled. I hope though that you can feel her presence. There is comfort in that. Do you talk to her, out loud? I talk to my dad sometimes. I will be doing something and will think of him, and although it’s been 26 years, I will ask him a question. and I think, call my crazy, just by asking the question I somehow get the answer I needed. I like that! 🙂

    • Becky says:

      OK, I’m calling you crazy! 🙂
      Not really….you’re not crazy, you’re just doing something that helps you ease the pain of the loss, and that’s all that matters!
      I think about her a lot, and I try really hard to keep her memory alive. It helps when I talk to her girls…they have some of her traits, and that makes it fun and interesting!
      She enjoyed life too much for me to be sad, so I keep smiling just for her 🙂
      Thank you my friend, for your kind and sincere words – they are always appreciated! So very much!
