My Friend, My Sister and My life saving Angel
My sister died 6 days ago of ovarian cancer that spread to her brain. She was first diagnosed in 2007, had surgery and was cancer free for 3 years. She was 5 yrs older then me but I felt like her twin, always connected by the hip. I feel like a part of me died with her. She was the strongest woman I know, the kindest and with a heart as wide as the ocean.
I have lost 2 other sisters before her, the first killed in a car accident, and the other to a illness. I guess the grief was not as bad but because they lived away from the family we didn't have that closeness. I can't understand the 2 types of loss.
This sister, helped me through really tough times of my life, she helped me raise my 2 daughters. She was always there when my life seemed worthless. She gave me back pride, even telling me no when I needed it. I miss her sooooo much. Being a caretaker kept me busy and I guess I never got time to think of losing her. I now miss her and I am now left behind with this big void in my life,
Living without her seems so unfair. She suffered so with the cancer. I feel like now I cannot take a step without her, my life is so empty, I have my faith that keeps me believing that this pain will get better, I know she is in a better place and that she is finally without pain. I believe that I loved her, but GOD loves her more. I pray that everybody hugs their family and takes a moment to appreciate family. ****Hilda, I Love you****
