  1. Of course it's yucky. How can it not be? I am so sad for this incredible loss.

    May you feel a special touch of the Lord's unfailing love.

    Love you.

  2. It is yucky. Sometimes I don't realize why it's yucky for awhile. So hard to understand these things.
    Love you
    Mean it

  3. Loss of loved ones is yucky. Even when you know where they are going. Such an earthly loss for those left behind.

    Love you, mean it, my friend.

  4. I can't imagine, Donna, the ache that resides in your heart. I love looking at Sue's smile. And the top photo has been one of my favorites since you first posted it. You are seven. Always will be.

    Hugs to you across the miles.

  5. Such precious pictures!! So very sorry for your pain.

    Love you. Mean it.

  6. Donna: I am so sorry for your loss. I have had several close losses in my life within the past couple of years. I understand your pain.

  7. I am so sorry for your loss. I lost a brother (to alcoholism) but have two sisters who I was (and am) closer to. I cannot imagine life without them ... their children are MY children. Heart hugs to you as you make your way through this difficult time. Linda

    Such a sweet post...I am so sorry for your loss and the hurt that you are feeling today. But, I do have to say that the caption after your first picture made me laugh out loud. How did you miss the white t-shirt memo??

    1. I have always been the style back sheep!! And they all had their cool sunglasses!
      I'm just a dork. (There was no memo)

  12. Oh Donna, life is just really sad and hard sometimes. You are incredibly blessed to have sisters. Prayers for your heart today and Sue's family too.

  13. Praying for God to comfort your heart and lift your spirit, Donna. mrsd is right: our deep grief is a reflection of a deep love. Bless you.

  14. Bless you in your grief. > it is still so fresh

  15. The anniversaries are always hard, even several years later. I lost my brother in October 1995 and my dad in October 2004. That month is always hard. Hugs to you.

  16. I am so sorry she is gone. My heart hurts for you. Sending love.
