One week ago today I lost my sister Linda to lung cancer. She was entirely too young at age 58 to die. I write this with a heavy heart. She was like a 2nd mom to me and not really a sister. She was so much older than me that our lives were always going in different directions. She was becoming a mother when I was still a kid. She was becoming a grandmother when I was having a baby. I wish we could have been closer. She not only was a beautiful person on the outside she was a beautiful person on the inside as well. I will miss her terribly.
