20 Years Gone... but never forgotten

Wow I just realized it has been 20 years (today) since my sister Amy's death. I am at the age now where it is close to almost half my life she has been gone.  Yet she still feels close.  I can summon her memory lightly and smile, or really let go, slipping back into the loss and have a good cry.  Re-reading my college English assignment memorial to her does it every time.  I know the past is gone forever, and it is best not to dwell there... but sometimes you need to visit it briefly, to feel the hugs and laughs and love again, to be able to pass it on to yourself first and then to others.  Cyber hugs to all. Carpe Diem
