I thought of you today, but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday and days before that too.
I think of you in silence, I often speak your name.
All I have are memories and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is a keepsake from which I'll never part.
God has you in his arms, I have you in my heart.

Togie, I just ascertained that your sister passed away and wanted to send my deepest condolences. I pray that you are doing better as each day brings you closer to some semblance of acceptance. Togie, I pray that I am not making it worse for you with this delayed response but I had to say something. I can empathize with you since I have lost several loved ones and I know the pain never goes away but each day and night gets a little bit easier to handle. She looked a lot like you. Take care and be blessed and safe.

My dear sister,
I miss you so much & you were taken from us too soon.
I miss our daily texts & sharing what our day was like. You were so strong & positive about your condition. You always put others first, even when not feeling ok.
You were a great mother, wife, daughter, & sister. You will always be with me, like Dad. I feel your presence every day & telling me it will be ok & you are in a good place. You had no regrets.
I love you so much and we’ll be together some day again, laughing, talking, & sharing memories.
Thank you for being there for me & being a big part of my life. Love you forever.
