There have been so many
special, warm, loving and caring times we've shared, as well as going through
some mighty rough times together too.
We've shared the
heartache of caring for our Daddy, our Mama, and your Marvin, as they lay dying
in their earthly bodies; when all we could do was tend to their pain, and help
each other to make it through, as we waited for them to pass into a place where
there is no pain.
You have been with me
through surgery after surgery... holding my hand, caring for Rip and me,
comforting me and boosting my courage. I drew strength from your being
beside me when I needed you the most and I'm sure that neither Rip nor I could
have come through those trials without you. I am so glad we didn't have to
try. I consider you one of the greatest blessings in my life and I thank
God for you.
Sis, we have shared many
sorrows, but we have also shared many joys together, and I think there have been
more good times than bad. That is what I want you to remember... the joys, and
not the sorrows.
I also want you to know,
that if we had not been sisters by birth, and I could have chosen a sister to
walk through my life with...that sister, would still have been you.
Thank You for being my
very precious, loving and caring Sister.
