my sister

My sister's name is Ally. In early August of this year she was killed at nineteen years old. I'm twenty. She was my best friend along with being my baby sister. A boy flipped his truck with my sister in the back after he had been drinking. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of her. I couldn't write how I feel or how much I think about her because there isn't enough time to ever truly show it. She was the most beautiful girl, the one girls were jealous of and guys fell head over heels for. She had the most outgoing personality and would make friends in any room she walked into. She would never hesitate to help anyone, regardless of what they had done to her. Even being the younger sister, she would look out for me and through everything in our life she would be that little ray of sunshine that made life worth it. Now she's gone and the pain doesn't get better. I love her with all my heart and now the only thing that makes days bearable is knowing every day is one day closer to her.

To Ally
by: Wendy

Your story is heartbreaking and very touching for me. My son died in 2009 at age 21 and my daughter, his little sister, was getting ready to turn 20. They were born 13 months apart. The loss is deep for her. When I think about their lives there were very few experiences they did not share together. People are generous with emotional support for parents who have lost a child. I'm not sure that generousity extents to the surviving siblings. Because your loss is so new you must still be in shock to some degree. Your healing will be a long road with many bumps. I don't ever expect to get over the loss of my son or for his sister to get over the loss of her precious brother. Maybe you should expect the same. His absence has changed us. That's not to say we have not moved forward and grown but we will never be the same.
I will keep you in my prayers Ally. Take care.

My sister was 20 when she was killed. I was 21. I know how you feel. She was also my best friend. We were 13 months apart in age. We shared so many things together.
