  13. Amy, my thoughts are with you as you celebrate your sisters life. I still have in my mind’s eye the picture of her as the Morton salt lady. She seems like a brilliant fabulous woman who was lucky to have you as a sister.

  14. I don’t even want to put the words “sister” and “death” in the same sentence. I cannot imagine the pain you are in, and I honestly don’t want to. I’m so sorry, so so sorry that you are having to say good-bye to such a precious part of your life.
    I wish you strength, I wish you courage, and I wish you grace to celebrate her life in a way that honors her and gives you a sense of her presence lingering.

    “I had to say good bye to someone close to me today.
    I say it over and over again,
    but I can’t get it through my head.
    I love you dearly,
    and my heart wants you near.
    It is too hard to say,
    too hard to think.
    Good bye.”

  23. Amy,

    What a tragic loss – I am so very sorry. I’ll be thinking of you this weekend as you celebrate Carrie’s life. How wonderful you have such a good friend in Heather (whom I was lucky to meet IRL this summer) to write this post for you.
    All my best,
    Micaela

  25. What a tragic loss. I’m so very sorry. Your sister sounds amazing. My sister has a child with disabilities and anyone who would devote their career to advocacy for those in need of it most, must have been a truly kind hearted and giving individual.

  41. My younger sister also died suddenly about three years ago. While it’s hard to understand how this could have happened to her, it was comforting to know that she is remembered as a kind, loving person that cared for others. I hope you find comfort in the words of your friend who obviously cared for your sister a great deal.

  42. This is tragic news. You and your family are in my thoughts.

  43. my prayers & thoughts are with you

  44. Amy, my heart is breaking for you and your family. I can only imagine how much you meant to her too. Thinking of you. xo

  46. I have been reading your blog for just a short time, but I am shocked and so saddened by your loss. My sister is the closest person to me in the world. I’ve often thought that I wouldn’t know what to do if anything happened to her. I’m just so sorry for your loss. Thinking of you.

  47. I cannot express my sadness for you at this time. Having a younger sister, myself, I can only imagine the pain you are in. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers and I am so very sorry.
