2 Years Ago Today.....

.....my oldest sister Karen & brother-in-law Jimmy went to Heaven. 2 years ago today was the absolute worse day of my life! While I know that Karen & Jimmy are with the Lord, I still can't help but wish they were back here with us :( Today, Dad, Linda, Barb, Donna, Jim & I went to visit the grave in Montrose, PA. It rained the whole way there & back, but we didn't let the rain stop us from visiting Karen & Jimmy. I had a flag banner made at Kinko's before I came to PA to put on the grave that has a photo of Karen & Jimmy on their motorcycle. We also got to see Donny (Karen's oldest son) while we were there. I took some photos, but I'm too tired to load them onto my laptop right now, so I'll post them in a few days.

Give your sister/brother/family a hug for me today because you truly never know when it may be the last time you see them again.

I'm sorry for your pain. {{hugs}}. Your words are painful because my brother and sister in law are here with me, in the same city, yet will have NOTHING to do with the rest of my family right now.... It hurts to think something could happen and we could lose them without getting the chance to love them again.. Next tuesday is my sil's bday, so today I spend $6 to mail her a gift across town. I'm sorry for your loss. I can't imagine the pain. Blessings to you...
