my little sister caution this is sad

This is my guardian angel. People say we look a lot alike.  She was beautiful inside and out.

I just realized what day it is.  My little sisters birthday.  She died of cancer 3 years ago on Oct.21.  She was only 35 and had two small children ages 6 and 9.  I miss her so much.  She was my best friend.  Even though she is gone now I can still feel her around me and it is wierd because now that she is in Heaven it seems she is right here with me sometimes.  I wish we could have had her here longer.  She was such a terirfic person.  She worked with children as a coach.  She was awesome and went the second and third mile with them.  She made her children the coolest scrapbooks and it helps them to remember her.  I miss her so much.  Cancer is such a hateful thing.  It turned my little sister Christi from a vivacious woman into an old person.  She had the most beautiful blonde hair and it was so hard on her to lose it.  The other day I heard a song by Rascal Flatts about a girls who dies of cancer.  I can not listen to that song.  It makes me so sad.  I love all their other songs.  I bought their new CD and I have to leave the room when that song is on.  Happy Birthday Christi I love you so much and always will...your big sister Barbara

She looks like she was a beautiful vivacious lady, Barbara.  I have lost family members to cancer as well, my beloved grandfather and a favorite great aunt.  It is a nasty disease.  My husband and I got married on October 7, 1978.  We buried my granddaddy on Christmas Eve of that same year.  He died from lung cancer, as did my favorite great aunt.  I pray they find a cure for cancer, so children won't lose their Mom's and sister's don't lose their sister's until it is meant to be.

Blessings!~

You right it is very sad to think that someone so young with little children of her own would have to subcumb to a disease such a cancer and my heart goes out to you who I know miss here terribly.  What a nice post expressing how much you miss your sister.  I truly believe that she is there around you at the time you need her most and I bet you can talk to her with just a thought.  Blessing to you sweetheart.
