Would you like to share some wonderful memories of her with us today?
Your question brought me to tears. Nobody really asks that anymore.. I feel so alone in my grief most of the time.
When she was born she was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. HUGE blue eyes that seemed to drink in everything around her. She had a bit of brown downy hair that I would stroke as she nursed..
When she was a toddler she found a poufy tricot slip that she adored. She wore it day and night for years until it was threadbare and ragged. She's sit by the washer until it was clean and dry and wearable again. When we'd go somewhere, she'd carry it in a little bag with her. I can still see her twirling about, a thumb in her mouth, a finger twisting her hair, her slip flying up.
She used to load the wagon with rocks from the garden and sell them to people in the neighborhood. They always bought them. Nobody ever turned her away.
She made paper flowers and sold them as well. I know a few people who still have those flowers...
She loved snowball fights, hot cocoa and working on jigsaw puzzles.
She wrote poetry and short stories and my god could she sing! A week before her death she sang at a school pageant -all alone, no accompniment, just her and her little sister on the stage. She held Boo's hand and sang to her.
The memories are rushing through my brain, I cannot stop crying.
If I live forever, I will never understand why she left us. One of my biggest fears is getting old and forgetting her... As much as it hurts, I don't ever want to forget...
