My dear baby sister, I will always remember the good times we shared.
As younger children, I know you always remembered the songs that I learned and would sing to you and Linda at night in our room before going to bed. Songs that eventually you sung to others...and the story you told me about singing "Yellow bird" to the turkey Melissa and Patrick raised for Thanksgiving.
There was the time when I came to Orlando when David was in the hospital and you drove over to get me. Then the time when I was in college at an Honor Society convention in Orlando and you drove over so we could visit Angela and the kids in Cocoa . And the time I was in Fort Walton Beach and you drove over to spend the day with me in Destin..
And the time you and Jim stopped by my house in Ohio on your way home from Michigan.
There were the times we went to Virginia Beach at the same time and we drove to the Oceanfront to shop, or to Chic's beach to spend the day, or went to Bayville Park.
And I'll never forget the time we went out with Linda, Helen and Angela . We really had fun that night, and ended it swapping jewelry in Linda's camper bus.
But there are so many memories of you and my children together, too. Like the time you came and spent time with me before Jesse was born so you would be there to babysit when I went into labor.
Or the bicycle that you bought Jesse for his second birthday. You were always there to talk to me, and you were always there for my children.
I wish I had called you or visited more. I hope the things that I made for you and sent to you were like a big hug from me. I'll forever miss your voice and your smile. We will see each other again one day. Until then, give Dad a big hug from me, and tell him I miss him. And always remember I will always love you... and wear tye dye in your honor. Rest easy in Heaven. At last you are in no more pain.
