Sweety

In memory of Kaladaa and Kyra

To my beautiful sister and niece, I miss you both deeply! I struggle daily and still have trouble understanding WHY!

You could see the beauty in all people, no matter where they came from. You had the ability to make everything extraordinary. You attended and participated in every holiday, and lived life to the fullest. Where you receive your energy to thrive is beyond me.

You took in the less fortunate. Offered a warm place to live to people who has nowhere else to go. You cooked, befriended and loved despite wanting better for yourself. Your daughter lost her life in front of your eyes, you tried to stop it but meant your demise in doing so. Even in such distress you remained so strong and fight for your life. I admire your strength. Wish I could tell you how proud I am of you, Sweety and Ky.

Love you always.
