Hi to my brother Ray. It has been about 7 months since I said hi. just wanted to say hello. I still miss you even though it has been 23 years. If you see Mama ask her to let me know how she is. Mama has been with you since 7-31-2010. Everyone tells me they see things and they know it is from someone in heaven saying hi. Can you, Mama, Uncle Albert or Grandpa please say hi to me. your baby sister. all my love to you all.
I Lost my oldest sister on 1/23/14. She had been sick her whole adult life, but at the time of her death she was doing ok. We were not expecting to lose her and the unexpected loss is devastating. I always thought that she would pass in the hospital and that I would have a chance to say good-bye. Somehow I think it would have made it a little easier if I was able to tell her one last time how much I love her and how much she meant to me.
We have two other sisters, both older than me as well. The second oldest was extremely close to my sister who passed. She was there when my sister died. She is taking her death extremely hard. She feels like she could have done more to save her. The pain my other sister feels is killing me. My heart breaks even more knowing that she is so broken. I wish there was something I could say to take all the sad feeling from her. I wish I could bring my sister back and I definitely wish I could have seen her one last time before she passed. This Friday, Feb. 7, is her memorial. I am going to say something about my sister, but I cant even bring myself to start writing it.
The only thing I hope right now is that she knew how much she meant to me. That she was an inspiration to me. In August I got married. Our father passed in 2006, so I had my sister walk me down the aisle. I am so grateful for that memory and I will cherish it for the rest of my life.
I am sorry if i was rambling. I didn't know where to start and it was hard to write this. It is hard to think that my sister is gone and I will never again get to see her... I am so heart broken
Karen, Death or the lost of our love one is never easy to come to terms with and never will be something we can just accept. It is not natural and it was not our Heavenly Father purpose for us to die. Remember, what was stated at Romans 5:12 "That is why, just as through one man sin entered into the world and death through sin,+ and so death spread to all men because they had all sinned." Death is an enemy to us - we long for our lost love ones. I lost my brother and parents and treasure the many beautiful memories I have of them. Some of them bring me tears of joy and some bring me tears of sadness - knowing that they are no longer here. However,, I truly trust and believe in the promise given to us at John 5:28,29. When one day I will live to see them again.
