Do you have a sister you love? Do you have a sister you lost?

My sister died in 1983. She was only thirty years old. She died from Leukemia. She left a six year old daughter and twins who were two years old when she died. Because we didn't live near each other, most of my memories are from when we were younger. I have a few tucked away for the times we were together after we both had children. Sometimes I feel her right next to me. Other times, weeks or months go by and I think 'Oh no, where's my sister? I can't find her in me.' I'm worried I'll forget her more and more until one day I won't remember the last time I thought of her. I don't have any pictures of her. I have one letter and a note from her. That's the only physical evidence I have. And now, I have to stop because I'm crying. Has anyone else lost a sister? Does anyone have a sister now and if you do will you promise me to love her every day of your lives? What kind of sister's does everyone have? I really miss mine and I wonder what I'm missing out on. Can someone tell me some loving sister stories?

Hi anawar! Although it's been a long time since her passing, I can tell that you still miss her dearly. You will not forget your sister as long as you have your memory so don't worry about that. You know what else you can do to make you remember her? pull out the letter you have from her and read it from time to time. That will surely put a smile on your face. I have two sisters under me and truth be told, we did not have that closeness that a lot of sisters have and i've always regretted that. My sister, (who is a year younger than me) and I have been through some rough moments but we are sisters and love each other and she will do anything to help me in a time of need and vice versa and I give all credit to God.

linda4always_ I guess I could take her letter out. I'm afraid something will happen to it and then everything will be gone. I'll have to think about your suggestion. Thanks for that insight. And thanks for telling me I'll never forget her. I needed that vote of confidence. Hold onto your sisters.
