Ten years ago a tragedy occurred which changed the course of my sister’s life. So many of us whose lives she touched with her love and generosity are still scrambling to fill the voids created by this loss.
Plans were hijacked, dreams shattered, and futures altered. She can no longer comfort us with her words, offer advice or encouragement, be our advocate, give us self-confidence or validation, accompany us around the world, or cuddle our babies in her arms.
This work is intended to celebrate my sister, who always brought happiness to others, even if only as a brief distraction from their own tragedies. It is an attempt to call out what we take for granted, and acknowledge that which requires appreciation, while there is still time.
