A Letter To My Sister


Hello Angie,

I don't feel like writing much today. Perhaps, another time I will tell a story about you with more joy and vitality. Right now, I am hurting so much that the words I write are making me well up with tears. You have been gone for 16 years....the same amount of time that you were on this earth fighting CF. It's still blows my mind that you are gone. You and I need to remind our friends and family with sibilings to love each other as much as they drive each other crazy, tell each other how much they care, and forgive what they swore they wouldn't. It makes everything much more peaceful when one sibling is gone.

You fell in love with "River of Dreams" by Billy Joel right around the time you passed. It 's full of hope, love, and joy for tomorrow...just like you. I was lucky enough to hear this live in concert with our "brother" Chad. We got the tickets last minute from a friend. I think it was you taking a moment to say hi.



Lots of love sweet sister. I miss you so much. You are my guardian angel.


Peaceful and Lonely Brother Things,

Josh

  1. Dear Josh,It is hard to believe that Angie has been gone for 16 years. Your letter is a great tribute to your love for your sister. Angie would be very proud of the fine young man that you have become. You have put great effort into keeping Angie's memory alive. She was a wonderful young lady and did amazing things with her short time on earth. You do her PROUD!!!
