I didn't get to see Karen as often when she moved to Georgia but some of her kids still lived in the area and she would return for holidays and birthday celebrations. I loved Thanksgiving and Christmas because everyone would get together as a family. We had a lot of memorable times as a family.

A few days before this last Thanksgiving Karen and I sat in the living room in our parents house and the four of us got to spend some time together. We talked, reminisced and laughed. I loved that special moment, it just felt so good. I'm so glad we were able to spend that time together.
I miss my sister every day. Her memory will remain alive in my heart.
