Its my sister Rosslyn's 20th anniversary tomorrow. I can not believe it has been 20 years since I saw her face and spoke with her on this earth. She was only 15 when she died, snatched away from us.
Sometimes, people write "what a waste" when they post candles and messages. I know they are trying to be supportive but I can never agree with that statement. Rosslyns life was short but it wasnt wasted. It was meaningful, it was fun and it was loving - nothing wasteful about it. No life is a waste - no matter how short.
We are so lucky to have had her in our lives.
I was lucky enough, after a three year waiting list, to see a medium recommended by a friend in 2010. I went with an open mind. As the reading went on, in popped my sister with details of her life and passing that only we would know - even if you take into account her story on GTS.
She said so many things and made me laugh so much as though she was in the same room, that humour coming through yet again. The one think she said over and over was keep the faith, I will be the first person you see when you get here.
I am holding onto that thought, every single day. I shall miss her forever until we meet again.
Always always sis........
