To my sisters:
I miss you so much. So much more today than any other day. Having you both gone on this day, this day that was the bestest, funnest day for us the past 10 years was a lot harder than I thought it would be. I can handle one of you living far away, but 2 is too much. There should be a rule that you have to take turns.
I feel like Jo in Little Women. Why does everything have to change? Why can’t it just be the same? I know you both have your own wild adventures to experience. Your own homes and families to grow, your own dreams and passions to pursue. But you are my little sisters, and for 27 years – with a few minor interruptions – we could call, or meet or see each other whenever we wanted And now you are both gone. And it is too much. Too much today. I am sure I will get used to it, and I will get busy and there will be little time for tears (I am being over dramatic here I know, believe me I know) but today I am tired and nostalgic so there is no stopping them…. today, without you here, my heart hurts. There is no other way to say it.
