16 years ago today we lost you. I still remember coming home from a sleepover & mom sitting us down to tell us what happened with tears in her eyes. I didn't understand it at first. While everyone was crying I was still trying to figure it out. Hey, I was only 7. When we were at the funeral & as I watched on the tv (I wasn't allowed in the church because it was an open casket) I was still clueless. When we drove to the grave sight to bury you & the policemen were all standing by your casket I still just did not get it. Looking around & seeing tears in everyone's eyes & mom bawling her eyes out into a tissue & grandma crying as well I couldn't grasp why everyone was so sad. It wasn't until we went to grandma's house after where it was now quiet & everything seemed different. I walked upstairs & your door was closed. I had never seen it closed. Grandma had opened the door & let us go inside. It smelled just like you. I grabbed a t-shirt & went back downstairs. I walked over to dad to show him what shirt I grabbed & as I looked up at him tears started to form in my eyes & that's when I knew you were truly gone. People say I look & act just like you & it makes me smile every time I hear that. Just knowing that I remind people of you makes me extremely happy. Thank you for being beyond amazing while you were with us & thank you for watching over us. You are truly missed. You may be gone but trust me you are NEVER forgotten.

Love always,

Your twin
