My sister was my life force. I adored her since the 1st time I laid eyes on her....(still adore u Kerrie!) She was 4 when I was born, momma said she never left my side! In a way, I take credit 4 the wonderful caretaker she became! Life moves on. We married, had our own families, and lived far away- (Atlantic/ Pacific) but always remained very close. Sometimes what we thought was 4 ever, life changes our view. Unfortunately, We both became single moms. Life was busy, we both went back to school 2 better care for our kids. Both of us got our diplomas, degrees, and began our careers. Fast forward in this BUSY, fast-pace crazy world. Life happens, and she began her journey of spiritual awareness. It took another 4 yrs before I, too, followed her path. She taught me a lot during our 1hr-long distance calls! We became as close as ever.all the wiser as we aged and our “babies” had babies of their own! Ahh,..the pleasure of grandkids!
Somehow, we lived in the same small So.Ga.city. However, we had opposite work schedules, so couldn’t be together as much as wanted. One day as I was going 2 work , there was Kerrie sitting in her car in my driveway! I immediately knew something bad was wrong. She approached me with a look on her face that is tattooed in my mind! She explained that she was sent home after a routine blood work up for all the nurses on her team. Her hemoglobin was 4!! Four?? (Range is 12!) She was as surprised, worried, anxious as I was! She could NOT go back to work without a Doctors release! We jumped in my car and headed straight 2 see A physician! I was thinking.... She was strong, worked as hard as 2 people, was a strict vegetarian, exercised regularly, and never allowed herself to gain more than 2 lbs after high school!
Thus began a different journey for us......one I dreaded taking. Kerrie stayed with me during what was the hardest time of our lives. She was still the Strong One! I lost my sister, my life, 2 years from that day in my driveway when she looked at me ....so lost and confused.
Not a day goes by that she’s not with me, in my thoughts, my dreams, on my hardest days she holds my hand. Did I tell you she was the most wonderful caretaker? ......she STILL IS! I love ❤️ you, Kerrie! 143
your sis, Myra
