Hello Darlin, its taken me 14 long years to find the words. I knew you for almost all of your life and tried to always be there for you when needed. Little did I know, that a hello at Sta-2 that afternoon, would be the last time I got to see your beautiful face.
The news of your passing was delivered to me that next morning and like everyone else that loved you, it just left me feeling so empty inside and it still does to this day.
I do feel your presence when I am crouched and crawling down a long hot hallway, when I am at a scene that makes me feel like the dice are being rolled and countless other times when I was uncertain how it would all play out. No matter what odds are against me, I always feel that little angel with me and know for a fact that you have pointed me toward the light in times of deep darkness.
I really miss the times you would stop by the firehouse and see me, your smile would lift me up, your little grin would make me smile and your laughter would brighten up the cloudiest of days.
I am left with the fondest of memories, the school years, the fun times all of us had growing up in Marietta, both of us getting into public safety as adults and most importantly, watching you bring beauty into this world in the form of children.
The incredible legacy that you left has been well taken care of, your sister has performed a most impressive feat and her ability to maintain is a true joy to see.
I now wait patiently to see you again, one day in the future and in a very special place. Until then I will simply glance up from time to time and say hello as I have always done or close my eyes until I feel your warmth.
I just cant wait to see your beautiful little face once again.
