Condolence & Memory Journal


I see your face and ask why do our lives play out a certain way, why do some die so young. I have no answers but know our destiny is largely planned for us.
I have so many memories that it's a blessing and curse, making me feel your absence.
I am constantly seeing little pigs in random, unexpected places (like the illuminated pig Christmas lawn ornament Lou, the girls and I saw while riding around). I take it as a sign you are with us.
To say I love you and miss you isn't enough but know the extent of it.
Love you always. Missing everyone in Heaven.

I can't believe it's been a year since you are gone. I think of you daily. I want to call you and hear your voice, or joke about the silly things that made us laugh like we were 5.
You were so dearly loved and now you're dearly missed.
Love forever, till we meet again,

To my beautiful sister, beautiful inside and out: I can't believe you left us so soon and so suddenly. How I will miss hearing your voice and sharing our stories, recipes, and TV shows.

I will miss laughing out loud at the things that struck us funny, and the memories of Lurting Avenue and our family growing up.

You always put your family first and thought of friends as well. You have touched so many lives you can never know. You have left a big giant void.

You said that your health was in God's hands. I guess that was true. I pray your journey was quick, your direction true, and that you are with our loving family in Heaven. Tell them all "Hi" for me and know that I will always love you.

<3 forever>
