In Memory of My Beautiful Sister

My sister was the most courageous woman I have ever known. Her resilience throughout her life is something I will always remember and aspire to achieve.
I will smile when I think of you Sis, and remember the sound of your laugh
I will fill in the spaces when someone asks about you,
and tell them from my heart who you really are
I will speak your name with pride, as if you were here by my side
I will take all that you have taught me, and promise to pass it on
I will continue to take you with me we will never be apart.

I will cry sometimes too when my heartaches for you

I will remember every moment we shared between us Sis;
they are engraved in my heart
I will wake up with the thought of you, and take you in my dreams
I will be forever grateful for the sister you have been.

I will miss our time together and I cherish everyone
I will never be the same sis without you here with me,
you filled my heart with so much love;

I can’t help but feel the pain of not seeing you again

So sis remember when I told you I’ll try to be strong
 well I’ve tried very hard to do what you asked,
but I must be really honest sis, it’s ripped at my heart.
It’s time to say I love you sis we will never be apart you're
right here with me always and forever in my heart
So just before I go sis I’ll play you a little song, one that you’ll remember
so I know you’ll sing along.
A year ago today

I hope you enjoy my video tribute my friends for my Sister with love
Always Love In Wendy’s World

Dearest Wendy,

Lovely tribute to your sister... At least, you HAD this sister for so many years. On January 11 will be the 'still-birth-day' of my older sister. I got her name, and for that added 'te' to Mariet(te) in order to live her life as well. Always wanted an older sister and now I only can dream of her...
When I was in the hospital, two years ago in January on her still-birth-day, I cried. Laying on the mattress, being paralyzed and in tremendous pain with high fever and the doctors couldn't find a cause (yet)... I felt my life being drained from me, literally as I'd lost so much weight too. I told my sister that I was not yet ready to meet her! Well, I'm back to health again and grateful. It is wonderful to meet people like you. Another thing that speaks for you is that you accept your awards. Not being selfish but doing something with them for others. You never know how much it may mean for others to lift them up. I always give it my thought and time!
Love to you dear and have a happy 2012!
