Sadly, I'm not new at losing loved ones. Being much younger than my family on both sides, I've had to experience loss a great deal. Father died in 1979, mother in 1998, my brother in 2001, my oldest sister in 2005. Now, in 2022, I am facing another painful loss, the last sibling to be by my side growing up.
I am sharing some of the last texts I shared with my sister, who was unable to speak (laryngeal cancer). If you have the luxury of time to help transition a loved one, help them get a perspective on their life here and the afterlife. It's the kindest last gift you can give.
Thank you to all of my friends who were praying for my sister as she transitioned to join the rest of our family in paradise.
