What Can I Say?
What can I say, there is now an empty chair at our family table. My little sister died at 5 AM this morning, after, as the obits say, a short illness. I held her and rocked her until the warmth left her body and I knew she was really gone from us. She was my 10th birthday present. The best one I ever got.
"Stay for me there; I will not fail to meet thee in that hollow vale. And think not much of my delay; I am already on the way." ~ Henry King 1592-1669
