My oldest sibling died on October 31st. It is an odd feeling to lose the first of the siblings. There is an empty space in my heart where he used to reside. I am still waiting for his spirit to take up residence.
I have lost a lot of people who mean a lot to me in the falls and winters as years have gone by. My mother has been gone 5 years this last November, my former spouse 6 years this December, and dad died in 1990 this December...now, Dennis. I think about ways to remember and honor them and try not to get too down about their passing. Sometimes it is hard.
Much love to you Dennis!
