My Sister & Me!
Bella (my sis) and Cookie ( that's me)
My sister went to be with the Lord on Feb 10, 2011. She went in for a gall bladder operation and wound up with 3 blood clots in her brain, she had a massive stroke. We were told that she won't make it if she were to have another stroke that she would be living in a vegetate state. She became paralyzed on her right side, couldn't talk, speak, eat or see. She had gone through so much in her short life-time. She had a breast removed, a brain tumor the size of an orange removed a defibrillator put in and many more health issues which came from chemo and radiation treatments.
We were sisters, friends and at times unlovable to one another, but she is my sister and I love her! I will miss our good times and our bad times as we were very close in growing up. My mom used to dress us as twins as we were less than a year apart. We use to play together and fought together and slept together cause we were afraid to sleep by ourselves when we finally got our own bedrooms. Of course my sister instigated a lot of trouble for me and I would get spanked and she would laugh, yep that's how it was folks, but she's my sister and I love her!
There are so many things I can say about our growing up, our marriages, our kids and grand kids but it would take an eternity and I don't have that much time. We both became born again Christians about the same time and we had our ups and downs in seeking the Lord, but He is faithful and now she is with Him, He is giving her unspeakable joy and she is seeing Him in all His glory. I will be with her and my mom when its my time to go, for He is my refuge, my comforter, and my Lord!
