You are now in heaven my little sister. You are enjoying the company of the Lord and your family and friends who have gone before you. I will miss you immensely but know that we will all be reunited some day. I am so relieved that God has released you from the pain and suffering you have endured for so long and I am extremely grateful to all those who saw that your wishes were fulfilled and granted at the end of your time here on earth. An interesting note I thought about while making your arrangements. You were born on an extremely snowy day. Seems there was a terrific snow storm on the day you were born paralyzing middle Armstrong County. We lived in West Kittanning when Mom went into labor with you and the roads were impassable. Penndot came to the rescue opening Harrison Street and our neighbor at the time, the late Ted Morris, owned a four wheel drive Jeep. He was the only one in the area capable of transporting Mom to the hospital. You were born later that day on January 13, 1964. Thank goodness for all those involved that day. Without them, we would never have had you to love and enjoy for the last 53 years. I love you and will miss you greatly baby sister.
