I will miss my sister...

I lost my younger sister to cancer a few days ago. I will miss her sorely because Christmas is fast approaching and she has always been my shopping buddy. We always went shopping for gifts together for she always makes it a point to have gifts for everyone dear to her. It is such a big deal to her if she fails to find a gift for someone on her list that is why she won't stop till she finds a gift for everyone. I will be missing one gift this Christmas, but more than the gift, I will be missing the giver. I will miss her so much.

I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my husband to pancreatic cancer just three years ago. i miss him as much as you must miss your sister. Just honor her memory because she will always live in your heart. You are lucky to have so many fond memories of your sister. I'm sure she was a terrific person.

Thank you for the kind words. Difficult as it is to deal with the conflicting emotion of losing a loved one in Christ, I know that God's grace shall see us through the troubles and pain of the separation.

my deepest condolences to you and to your family, i know it will be hard for you as you are very close to your sister, I am also close to my sister but we are apart from each other now as i need to work oversea for our family, it was very hard but life has to go on. You have the right to grieve for her but i dosn't have to stop your world and let everything fall apart. You know in your heart that she will alway be there for you no matter what, I could tell your sister is a very nice person thats why you love her so much, and now i am sure that she is in a better place looking after you, you need to make her a proud little sister who had the best older sister she has ever hard by being strong and being the best you can be. Don't let her down :)

Thank you, mesuaky, for the encouraging words. I know that I should move on, it just difficult to reconcile the conflicting emotions of sadness because we no longer have her with us, and the joy of knowing that she is now very well off than all of us. I look to God's grace to see me through.

I am so very sorry to hear about your loss. I would like to offer my condolences. I too know what iti s like to loose someone you love. I lost my grandparents a few years ago and sometimes I feel like it just happened yesterday. I was very close with them, and spent a lot of time with them everyday. I know that you must feel as though a part of you is missing but you need to keep all the happy memories alive. The best way to make sure that your sister is remembered is to speak about all the fond times you shared together, doing so will make certain that a part of her will always remain alive. I hope that you stay strong and that this holiday season still brings you joy and love.

My sincerest condolences. It is very hard to lose a loved one and doubly difficult when the Christmas season comes around. My dad passed away nine years ago. I have found that the ache never goes away but can be assuaged when I recall the good times I had with him. I'm sure that you have treasured memories of your sister and that she will stay in your heart forever. I pray that you will soon find out too how to remember your sister best so that despite the tears you will still have reasons to smile.

I am so sorry! This will be a sad season for you. I hope you can remember that this is only a temporary separation and she will be waiting to greet you when you are done with this life and your mission completed. She has no more pain and is in the presence of our loving Creator.

I am sorry to here that,each individual has an unforgettable person,a memory that pains the heart and soul. Life is full of ups and downs. Same for me also,i lost my sister in law few days back.I never forget what she have tell to me and the words of advice she spoke rings in my ears every night as i go to bed. It would break my hearts,i always wondered why my sister deserted me,never to return.I really miss my sister in law.....
