"This ONe's for You, Wherever You Are."

My sister Debbie and I, circa 1979 - I'm eating my snack and she's lighting a cigarette
We were laughing as my Uncle took this pic -and that's what how I'm trying to remember her today...laughing.

Well, it's been 18 years since you left us Deb, and there's not a day that goes by that I don't think about you and all you went through. The world of diabetes has changed so much and I wish that you could have benefited from all the research.

last year I wrote a post on your life and how you suffered with diabetes. Today, I'm just trying to remember you laughing, because when you laughed, I loved you the most.

To quote Barry Manilow - one of your favorites, "This one's for you, where ever you are."

Hope heaven is all it's cracked up to be and that every day there is better than the one before. Give Daddy a hug and a kiss for me and know that I miss and love you both very much.
