Reddit is a very interesting site if you have never gone. I never post there and have never signed up, but I read various questions and answers by the public and saw this I so miss my dear friend and real true sister Maryellyn who passed away too soon. We spent holidays together and I REALLY miss her at Thanksgiving because we were always together then. I miss her so. We were like family is supposed to be. We didnt fight. We supported one another completely. She once let.me stay with her family for three weeks refusing money and I made sure to go to Illinois often and stay close as she fought cancer. I know she is still with me. I feel her often and still confide in her. I also always miss my dear grandmother who always tried to love and protect me partly from her own daughter and my father too. I miss many animals I loved who have crossed the rainbow bridge. My cat will be gone this year (tearing up like the baby that I am). It is her first year gone. I just read this question on Reddit so I posted it to see if anyone wants to share. I am not sure you will want to but if not....this is my holiday vent. I am missing my sister of choice very much and that triggered this. In many ways i was as close to her as I am to my husband and precious children. in a way, you guys are famiily too. I dont really consider family to be DNA. Never did. Thanks for being here always.
