A journal of how I feel about losing my Sister Erica and other loved ones in my life. The grief and feelings I never knew exsisted, until now.

Erica Showing Sheep, Spring 1995
There are certain times that make the loss of Erica more painful and this week is one of them. This Friday is the fall sheep show in Cleveland County. Erica's daughters are showing in the same arena their mother did when she was in high school. These times have always been family events for us. Erica's absence will be painfully present. We would always sit in the bleachers together and watch, first my brother, and then her girls. For the last nineteen years many memories were made during sheep shows. This six month milestone is proving to be difficult because I know my sister would want to be there for her girls. My heart is heavy for our loss of Erica.
