My dear sweet sister-in-law died yesterday evening. She was truly an earth angel. In all the many years she was part of my family never once was she anything but smart, and sweet, and generous, and kind. She and Mike were diagnosed with cancer the same year and became close as they understood each others journey so well. They both had an outrageous sense of humour and would joke about death in ways only they could get away with. Heaven will never be the same now that they are together up there! I am so thinking of my baby brother and my nieces as I know too well they journey they are now on. She was only 51 and my nieces are young, two still in high school and two just graduated university. The girls were not allowed to be with her because of Covid rules. My brother was told he could not stay with her either but he just looked at the nurse and said "No. That is wrong. I am staying with her" No one at the hospital said another word and he did stay until the end. This year is almost more than I can take.
