Missing My Sister
Belinda Stotler
To my precious sister, Shisha

One morning I found you in eternal sleep;
I tried to wake you as I began to weep,
But all my pleas you could not hear;
Oh if I could have only kept you near,
Away from the voices of those who went before,
Who beckoned you to come to that distant shore.

I find it so very hard to believe
That you have gone and I must grieve;
I call out your name-you answer not,
And I look for you in every familiar spot,
Everything seems so strange and surreal,
I ask everyday is it a dream or real?

Where are the soft brown eyes of affection?
Where is the laughter and talk of childhood reflection?
Where is the loving care when I was sick or sad?
Where is the generous soul for which I was glad?
Where is the forgiving and understanding heart?
Where are the bonds that were there from the start?

Can we believe what others say of a better place,
Where our beloved ones rest in God's warm embrace?
I should be happy you're free of pain and sorrow,
And rejoice that you'll always have tomorrow.
How can I then be so heartbroken and selfishly cry,
Return to me from that peaceful place where you lie!

Although I cry and stand grief-stricken by your grave,
I promise not to forget the loving memories you gave;
But still I miss you so very much my sister dear,
And your caring words I once again long to hear,
My heart's only solace is one day I will see you as before,
Beckoning me to come join you on that white distant shore.
With all my love always,
Your sister, Ger

Patty was a wonderful loving person that I know through our granddaughter Jasmine. Patty loved the Lord and was a pillar of strength that her family and friends could always depend on. My heart feels heavy knowing she is gone here on this earth but at peace knowing one day we will see her again in heaven. I will always have fond memories of Patty. Praying for her family for God's peace and comfort during this sad time. God Bless You!

My heart sank when I opened The Repository Obits. and saw your face. Dear sweet long ago friend I can't believe you are gone. It was just like yesterday that we graduated from nursing school together and we went our separate ways. But you were never forgotten. You were so funny and we laughed so much together. You were kind and thoughtful and always up for an adventure. I thought of you often through the years, wondering where you were and if you had changed at all.
Condolences to your family and loved ones. May they find solace from knowing how much you were loved by those you touched. You had such a huge capacity to love. Goodby dear friend.
