We lost my sister Kris six years ago. My brother-in-law Den had these flowers placed on the alter at church this weekend in her memory.
My memories of her lately have been when we were young. She was 9 years older than me but still found things we could enjoy together despite the age difference.
One memory I have is of her and I watching spooky movies, just the two of us. Our younger brother was too little for spooky movies and we waited until he went to bed. We shared a huge bag of chocolate chip cookies dipped into short glasses of lemonade as we settled in for spooky movies until I fell asleep.
Here is my Haiku:
- our expectations
- satisfied with shared terror
- and sister giggles
Love and miss you Kris!
