Debbie - 21 Years Goes By Like THAT.

Debbie, Santa & Kelly

21 years goes by like THAT..... And there's still some much I remember.
Today, I choose to remember how you were on this day, how we both we're.
We were happy and we were laughing and we didn't have a care in the world.

I think about you everyday,Deb - And I miss you very much - And I wish I'd been more patient at times.
Today, diabetes is so much different and you wouldn't feel alone.
You'd feel more empowered and you'd be part of amazing diabetes on-line community that would just continue to amaze you everyday - TRUST ME.

I find comfort that Mom and you are together again, because she missed you so much!
Still, I'm jealous that she's with you because I really miss her!
But I remind myself how long you both waited to see one another again and I can only imagine the party that you and Dad had when she got to heaven.
Take care of her, and Daddy too.

What a great picture. I can only imagine how much you must miss her - them. Hoping you cherish those wonderful memories and take comfort in knowing that you have very special angels watching over you. Hugs to you today!

What a wonderful picture, Kelly. So many memories are evident in just that photo and what you write. Thank you for sharing this, and keeping those memories of your sister alive as you share them with us. She's obviously still a part of you, watching over and guiding with your mom. Wishes your way today, and always, my friend.

Its a great photo (wow, your sister looks so much like you do today as far as facial structure!). Also a very touching tribute. I cannot help but wonder if the principle of karma might be at work here, meaning in the afterlife, all of us PWDs are the ones privileged enough to watch everyone else around us struggle with the day-to-day B.S. people with chronic diseases deal with. I can only hope we can learn to be empathetic to them, quite unlike many of the ignorant masses nowadays! Anyway, thanks for sharing a touching post. I'm confident Debbie and your mother are proud of you (your mother was already!).

Ugh, it amazes me that someone who has lost so many close loved ones can remain so hopeful and kind and positive. It's awesome. Sending you comforting vibes and hugs. Take care.
