Wednesday we lost one of its greatest beauties and I lost my big sister, the one who I looked up to growing up, admired, and only wished I could be half as strong and optimistic as. Going forward I don’t quite know how to move forward. This all so sudden. I only hope you went peacefully and felt comforted and knew the love people have for you. No one could hate you. You are sweet, kind. I remember my favorite game as kids when we would go out on the trampoline late at night and we played jungle. You were always the kangaroo because you could jump the highest. I always wanted to be the kangaroo. I also will always remember your beauty that was obviously exterior but so much interior. Just about more than anyone than I know. Obviously the guys gawked over you and got your fair share of attention. I know how we talked about what your life would be without HD and the things you would want, kids, a husband, a career. And I’m sorry this shitty disease took that all from you. I only hope my kids somehow gave you that glimpse of the joy of having a child. My girls love you so much. I don’t quite know how Kimila especially is going to adjust. She was always wanting to hang on you and play with you in her bedroom. Its going to be a hard road but even having you there for a moment makes me very lucky. I am lucky to know you and you changed my life and made me a better person. I hope you know all that. I also hope you know that I love you for everything you are and were for me. You are absoulety amazing and I hope you are with Judy and your daddy living it up. I know how much you missed them. You no longer have to hurt and that makes me feel good. Forever and always you will be remember and your impact in this world is unfathomable. I love you big sis. RIP
