Today my sister would have been

45. January 2, 2002 a bullet stopped her from getting to 40. I've been trying for 5 years to come to terms with my baby sister not being there any more. At least this year I didn't have to stop myself from going to the phone to call her. I suppose that's getting better in one way.

It is never easy coming to terms when someone is taken unexpectly from us. I don't know if we really ever do. The pain might lessen in time but we'll always remember them. They are a big part of our lives and they are always in our hearts. Eventually the pain isn't there as much and we can think about the good times without the memories tearing us up. It will get better but it will never be all right for it to have happened.

I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my brother a year ago and it's just so very hard to imagine life without them. If you believe that God has a master plan then it may make it easier for you know she is in a better place maybe doing a good that needed being done. For selfish reasons we want them near us when in the grand scheme of things their purpose may be better served elsewhere. Continue to heal. She would want you to be at peace and happy.

Sorry to hear of your loss. It's always hard not to have that loved here with us especially when it was as sudden as your situation is. I do sympathize with you though, my dad as been passed for 14 years now and I still wish there were moments I could still talk with him. *many hugs to you*

:( So sorry to hear of your loss. I'm sure it's a very tough thing to get through. Have you had some counselling to help you? I'm sure if I were to lose my sister I would still go to the phone several times during the year to phone her as well :( I'm very sorry for you.
