So beautiful, and so heart wrenching. It sounds like you related to each other in such deep ways. I've always longed for a relationship like that with a sister. Was not to be.
What prolific writers you both are - thank you for sharing, even if it did make my heart hurt. I hope that your daughter has the joy of having a sister relationship like you and Lora.


A very touching tribute. Thank you for're very lucky to have her watching over you.

Estoy con vosotros en este día tan triste.

thank you for sharing the speech and the letter with us. it makes me realize i need to appreciate my sister more. i'm thinking of you and Lora today.

It is always inspiring to hear stories of you and your sister. I could read/listen all day about your relationship. You are a very strong woman. Know that I am thinking of you and your sister today. Love, Sarah

that's beautiful and wonderful and filled with love. i'm sorry you have had to go through that and continue to go through it still, but i'm so glad to see the love you can still hold to in spite of it.

i'll be praying for you.

What an honor to read about your sister. What a beautiful young lady. I read every page and looked at every picture on her website. My heart broke because I too am a big sister and can't imagine the loss. May your heart be comforted by the good memories! Thanks for sharing.

It's amazing how fast time goes. It doesn't seem like a full year has gone by sincw J was home on his R&R this time last year. I was so glad he was there for you last year during this time and now again this year. You are such a strong woman that I know your children will be inspired by. I greive with you today and pray for you always!
Love Erin

Everytime you post about her my heart breaks for you. I can't imagine having a sister and then having a life without her. It sounds like you two were able to make the most of and appreciate each other in the time that she was here. I always worry about trying to say something to someone that is greiving because I feel like there are no adequate words. I apologize if this attempt falls short. Please know that the intentions were pure.

Crystal - What a great tribute to your sister. I know she continues to be proud of you. Take Care, Keri
