I can’t believe how much time has gone by. It seems to have gone so quickly and so slowly at the same time. I think about you all the time. You will always be my best friend, no matter how many years pass. I miss you and I love you – I always have and I always will <3

Birthday Wishes

Today is your birthday! I remember spending several of your birthdays up in Canada. I remember always having dirt cake on your birthday and hearing Margaret tell us about the day you were born. I even remember the birthday tradition of not being able to talk while eating cake on your birthday or you’d have to sit under the table until your cake was done; of which you quickly decided that you would rather sit under the table and talk with us and your friends than not be able to talk. All of your friends were totally freaked out and didn’t know what to do, so they all joined you under the table. My tradition now, is to spend your birthday hiking at Devil’s Lake. It’s not nearly as fun as spending time with you, but I can remember all of the fun things we did while hiking and enjoying the solitude of nature. I only wish you could join me. I miss spending time with you watching movies, shopping, and dancing in the living room. I miss talking about boys and laughing about embarrassing moments. I miss having a sister; I miss you! I know I could have been a better sister, but you were the best sister and friend a girl could have ever had. I could argue with you and know that you would still love me. I could tell you my secrets and know that they were safe. I could be honest and true and you would never judge me, but rather, give me your honest opinion and advice. No one can ever replace you. I will miss you always!!

Miss You

Looking through pictures of Grandmum, I can’t help but think about how much better this would be if you were here to help me with it. Zoe is so much like you, it’s uncanny. I miss you more than you can imagine. Love, E

Flower Girl

Emily, I remember on our way to winter formal you asking me if you could be the flower girl in my wedding (Granted, I think you thought I was going to be marrying Kyle… that surely did not work out 😉 But I am getting married this March and around the flowers that my flower girl carries will be a charm with your name- I just wanted you to know that you’re still in my wedding because you’re still in my heart. Your Sister Forever, Jamie

Thinking of You

Hey Emily: I have been thinking about you a great deal. I miss you. You made me stronger and your laugh always reminded me not to take myself to seriously. I miss it. Love, ~Kate

I love you

Emily, I think about you every day. I miss you so much. There are so many days when I just want to give you a big huge hug, or call you on the phone and talk with you for hours or have you help me shop for some really fabulous shoes. I miss spending time with you and being goofy. I just want you to know that you are the greatest sister in the world and I love you. I miss you Emmie! Greta

Hello my love

Thinking of you today and every day. I love you more than ever. I’m trying to be grateful for the time we had together instead of thinking of how much more wonderful my life would be if you were still here with me. I miss the way your laugh sounds. I miss you. C.
