On this past Tuesday, it was nine years to the day that my sister-in-law Wendy died while on vacation in Mexico. It’s still a big part of our life and it probably always will be. Again, Rosemarie and Erin strove to make sure that this day is a happier one for our daughters, and one which helps them appreciate the value of sisters.
Nora asked “is there a brothers’ day?”
The day was celebrated with cupcakes that the girls picked out themselves, and a nice meal. The kids may be a little young to really appreciate what all this is about (though we haven’t hidden the facts from them or anything). But, eventually they will get it.
If you are fortunate to have a sister, you should call her up, or hug her. Wendy’s memorial page remains online here.
