It's been a rough week for me. Christmas and New Year's Eve were real nice but then on New Year's day I found out my youngest sister (I call her 'youngest' even though she was older than me) had six months to live. Friday, Jan 3 was her birthday but on Saturday Jan 4th, she passed away. Bettina has been carrying on with posting while I could get my thoughts together and wrap my mind around the sudden loss (Vielen Dank Mein Schatz!). Cathy and I had grown apart and pretty much went our separate ways over the past twenty years and I regret now not talking to her sooner, but she was my sister and I loved her. Rest in piece Cathy!
