Hanging in There

Posted on: November 30, 2016

A week ago we had my sister, Kelley’s Memorial Service 

and thanks to her friends who stepped up and told great stories 

that made us laugh, it was everything I had hoped for her….

Through my tears and heartache,  I am trying to hold onto the 

beautiful vision I had of her in the loving embrace of our parents.

The necklace she is wearing here is one she made and loved and the first thing

I went to find to hold close and feel her with me…

She didn’t have kids of her own, but sure loved mine, this was the one birth 

she actually made it to , with my youngest….

It’s so hard to understand how someone so vibrant is gone.  

She was so active and I grabbed her tennis shoes and have been wearing them as some days like the day

planning her service at the funeral home, I needed to walk in her shoes…

One day I went for a walk and i swear her shoes carried me and I actually felt a pep in my step, 

that was definitely not coming from my broken heart….

She really got into biking after her divorce and I love this powerful picture 

of her celebrating Day 2 and still going strong…. 

I picture her riding on to a new journey…

Dear Readers, Taking it one day at a time as the shock of this sudden unexpected loss of 

a healthy 53 year old sister sinks in….

So sorry for the loss of your dear sister. I cannot imagine how you are coping. I will continue to pray for you.

Thank you, this is very difficult and i am taking it one day at a time.

What a beautiful and vibrant woman. You gave her a wonderful tribute. I am so sorry for your loss.

Tracey, that was such a special post- you can really sense your sister’s spirit from those pictures. This is a tough journey you are on with good days and dark ones.. times when you’ll need lots of support and moments that must be spent all alone. It’s hard, but you have a wonderful family and I promise, you’ll make it through..they will help you through.

A lovely tribute to a beautiful and clearly vibrant woman. Deepest condolences on your loss.

I enjoyed seeing these memories of your sister, Tracey. What a lovely lady, and a very nice tribute to her. Keep those memories in your mind and I hope you can find comfort.

Dear Tracy,

What a lovely tribute to your beloved sister. The pictures are beautiful and will always bring back happy memories you’ve shared. I know this heartache too because my brother was killed in a car accident when he was 18 (I was 16) and I miss him more every year. When you love someone you’ll always miss them.

Love and prayers!
