She was the other Mother.
When our Mother couldn't be there.
She was the other mother to many.
When other mothers were not around.
She was the best big sister.
She was the best friend.
The best listener.
She had the best wit.
The best laugh.
The best shoulder to cry on.
She taught me how to sew a button on my shirt.
She was a friend to many.
She had time for everone.
She trusted everyone.
She always left a key in the front door!
My sister was the most loving person I have ever known.
I miss Helen so much, it breaks my heart.
But I am getting back.
I am coming back, slowly.
I am .
I have to.
And it lightens my heart so much to know that my pal Jimmy is on the mend.This news really cheers me.
So here's a glass to my lovely Sister.
And a glass to Jimmy.
