    Those we lost in 2014

    My Sissy

     
    I didn't always have the best relationship with my sister. When she was diagnosed with lung cancer in April and given 6 months to live, we made the most of the time we had. She was a gentle soul, though often misunderstood, she lived a hard life, but she faced death with such dignity and grace. We lost her in September, she was only 43. I wish we could have put aside our differences years ago, but at least we had those last few months. She left me with a precious gift - her son - who will always remind me of her. I am overcome daily with the depth of her impact on my life.
