That's how long I was blessed to have Susan here on earth as my sister.  I dont recall my first memory of her, I just remember her always being there, until she wasn't.  I was never prepared to live the rest of my life without her and I'm still not but as the Rolling Stones said "You can't always get what you want". So lame.

The above photo of her with her birthday crown was taken July 2020 amid the stupid pandemic. We had a "garage" party at my mom's where we all stayed six feet apart from one another, outside, to celebrate Susan's birthday.  I'm so freaking thankful that we did because a year later, she was in rehabilitation for her amputation for her birthday, and that was her last. 

There is so much I want to say, but I think I will just keep this brief.  I saw this poem the other day and I thought it was perfect.

Your life was a blessing,

Your memory a treasure.

You are loved beyond words,

And missed beyond measure.


In Susan's memory, please do a random act of kindness this weekend for someone.  She would love it and there is no better way to honor her for her birthday. 💗

Happy Heavenly birthday, Scoot!

I love you and miss you more than words can desribe.
