Today, I am remembering my lovely niece. Kasey passed away a year ago this past August. Her birthday is quickly approaching and so I am remembering. I really miss her. My heart still yearns for her. My ears still catch her voice in the wind. My arms still long to hug her. I still dream about her sometimes and she looks lovely. As the pain of loosing her spreads out in my life to take its quiet place in my heart, I have come to the place where I picture her the way she was before she got sick. That bouncy, smiling girl with long rich, brown hair that bounced along with her smile. I still remember my last talks with her. Those times when all we could do was sit together. I am so glad that I took the time to see her as often as I could. Those memories as so precious to me now. I am so thankful that my husband supported those trips.
