Rip Rosemary

My beloved rosemary took her last breath on April 28th. Surrounded by two of her nieces and her two brothers. It is a moment I hoped would never happen. We discussed our fragile health many times but neve allowed it into reality. I will miss her forever. I keep expecting the phone to ring, just Ast has three times a day for the last 10 years. My rational mind knows it will not happen but my emotional mind hopes this was just all a big bad nightmare.

I loved her like a sister, a sister I was never blessed with. We bickered and argued. We never kept score. We never counted our beans. We never went to bed angry. We accepted each other just as we were.

We spent endless hours together cramped into my childhood bedroom. It looked like a dorm room up there. Neither of us cared. The endless laughs that happened with her sitting at the foot of my bed as I was strapped into my brace will keep my heart from breaking in half. We looked forward to that time of day when we could unload on each other in a safe environment,

The thought of spending the rest of my life without her is unimaginable but the almost 50years of memories shows sustain me.

Rip rosemary!
