For My Sister

Today is the saddest day of my life.  Today my sister passed away after a long struggle with breast cancer.  She was 50.  My heart is broken into pieces, but she is at last at peace.  And so today, this short post is for her.  Maureen.  My quietly strong big sister, who made the world a better place.  It won’t be the same writing in my blog, knowing she won’t be reading it.  (Or will she?)  I am going to miss her so so much.

I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge.
That myth is more potent than history.
That dreams are more powerful than facts.
That hope always triumphs over experience.
That laughter is the only cure for grief.
And I believe that love is stronger than death.

- Robert Fulghum
