"Chance made us friends, hearts made us sisters."
"A sister is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost."
"Sisters don't need words. They have perfected a language of snarls and smiles and frowns and winks... expressions of shocked surprise and incredulity and disbelief. Sniffs and snorts and gasps and sighs... that can undermine any tale you're telling."
And sisters, they are. More bonded than any genetics could achieve, Joyce and Evelyn have shared each other's lives, families, hopes and dreams for many years. I won't say we've suffered a loss, for Evelyn will live on in our daily thoughts and with much love in our hearts. Her laughter, her wit, and her wisdom are forever a part of our families' lives.
So many memories, this lady shaped a part of who I am today...and will be tomorrow.
We love you, Aunt Evelyn.
