Saying goodbye to my sister, my only sister.
We were always very different, I was blond with brown eyes and she had dark hair and blue eyes. She was outgoing, I was shy.
Ann at age 4
When I was a little girl I called my sister "Sissy!" One of her friends laughed at that and it embarrassed me, so I stopped. I wish I had continued, I think Sissy is a sweet endearment.
We always had a lot of distance between us since I have lived in Florida most of my life. During the last 20 years we started trying to spend more quality time together.
Ann had a long hard battle with the lung cancer which went to her brain, then throughout her body. Her five children took turns being by her side so she wouldn't be alone. They were wonderful with her! Such love.
We will miss her very much, but know we will meet again to spend eternal life together!
Ann and Leroy
May you rest in peace.
