My Suzy





I am so...
surprised ?
unbelieving ?
uncomprehending ?

filled with sorrow

to find myself breathing in the world

without my big sister breathing in it

her last ten days we lived together at the hospice in NJ
breathing together
and now I am breathing for three
Mama, Suzy and me

grief so great
but so grateful
to have had her for the time I could

Sisters are forever, that can never change and Suzy will always be with you in your heart and soul.

Take care of yourself now.

Dear Jeanne
There are no words at times like these. Just know that your friends are thinking of you. Take care of yourself.

I just did a Gilda's Club Zoo walk this morning in memory of my wife and then noticed the note on Karen's page. So sorry... Know she is resting now and guiding you still. Take care of yourself, Run Good!
