I'm sorry I Wasn't there in her last days. But I don't want to remember her like that. I Couldent bare to see her in pain. I want to remember the good days. As I looked back in our lives we spent a lot of time together. Bingo was a favorite pass time for her. And she was really good at it. I remember I would only have 3 cards and she would have like 30. How she still was able to help me keep up ill never know but she did. I missed seeing a Bingo on my cards and she caught it and I won 50 bucks....lol. One time we went camping with the guys. Her husband, mine and her two boys. We was pretty far from any stores. And we woke up wanting. a cup of coffee and a restroom so that we can get cleaned up in. We walked and walked it seemed like forever looking for a store. I remember her promising when I was pretty young that she was bringing us kids to the movies. Any ways when she went to get in the car she bent down and hit above her eye and needed stitches but she wouldn't go. Why because she didn't want to break her promise to us. She ended up going to the hospital after the movies.She had a big heart and loved spending time with her kids. And lots of times she would just call up and wanted to know if I wanted to ride around in the rain. Lol...she loved the sound of it hitting the roof of the car...I can go on and on. There's so much. But ill leave it at that. She was my sister and ill never forget her. Always in my heart. I love you Dev. See you in heaven. .
Your gone now and I feel the void, empty and hollow. But as each day goes by the memories start to filter in to fill that void. We have been through many good and bad times together, and supported each other through the sad times. I will miss you so much, and I will remember all you have taught me. Smile down on me from time to time while you are looking over your family, Sisters like you deserve a special place in Heaven. Love you always your sister Cookie.
