We are sisters who shared pacts and secrets.
We are sisters lucky enough to have had a lifetime of sharing...just not quite long enough.
We know what only sisters know...that we belong to each other in a way that never will belong to anyone else.
I look at the sky and wonder where you are and why did you have to leave me so fast.
How I miss you.

Love always,

Dear Lenore, I am so sorry for the loss of your sister Linda. It is never easy losing someone as dear and wonderful as Linda. What will last in my memories forever is New Years Eve Party at the pool where your family joined us. Linda had her big smile going on and her laughter too. She got the biggest kick out of all the silly things and joined right in with everyone. Anyone who knows her or had an opportunity to know her will never forget what a wonderful person she was. My prayers and thoughts go out to you and your family. Know now she is in God hands who will take her and guide her to her loving family members who will put her at peace.

Dearest Linda----Although I never actually got to meet you, your sister (Lenore) and niece (Lisa) have told me so many wonderful things about you. You were loved by soooo many people and that speaks volumes to the kinda of person you were. Now, rest at peace, with all of the heavenly angels, and know that your memory and legacy will live on with your son, grandchildren, sister, niece and many other close family members. You are at home...where God planned on you to be!!!
