Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal

To live in hearts we leave behind
Is not to die.
~Thomas Campbell,

There are no words for loss, especially the loss of one's friend, confidente,
mother, teacher, pal, partner, sympathizer, benefactor, ally AND sister~ My sister lost her battle with pancreatic cancer, August 29, 2009. I said good bye to her on Monday of that same week, held her close, cheek to cheek and heart to heart~~ We knew she was failing. NO, not failing, she was moving on to her next journey, one she was prepared for and willing to travel. I will MISS her more than words could ever express but I KNOW in my deepest cavities, where all our secrets are held safe & protected, that she is with HIM. I told her long ago, if you get to Heaven before me save me a seat in the front row~~I am sure she and God are having a discussion about this right now;)

A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit, a golden thread to the meaning of life. ~Isadora James

I love you dear sister, always and forever, until we meet again...
