An Open Letter to Our Aunt Sis

Dear Sis,

I can't believe your gone? And so suddenly.

I'm not sure what my MIL will do without you. You guys were so tight. You were by far her closest sibling. I think she is trying to be strong, but she is hurting.

I think even after you fell down those stairs we all believed that you would recover. We heard the doctors but we chose to ignore them. What did they know? They didn't even know you.

There were small signs that you were saying goodbye and we thank you for those last smiles. I know my MIL will not forget them. Of all her eight siblings, I never would have thought you would leave us first.

You and I shared a birth date and because of that we had a sort of kinship. I will miss our dueling birthday cards.

Even though I know in my heart that you are at last reunited with your husband, I am deeply saddened that I will not again hear your sweet laugher.

Please tell Grandma we miss her.

Until we meet again.
