I love my sisters. One is in Heaven and the other lives 2 hours away from me! I don't think I would be the person I am if I didn't have my sisters! The photo here are my three girls. Sisters! Would you ever guess that they are close? Such pretty girls. I don't know what I would do without them! They were more challenging to raise than my two sons but they are worth it!

I hope you share your favorite "S" with the Alphabe Thursday gang! Visit Ms. Jenny. I started this "S" post because I wanted to share my late sister Pat with you. She would have celebrated a birthday today. But instead she went to be with the Lord in 2001. She made the best Barbie clothes for all my dolls when I was a kid. She was 16 years older than me. She was the apple of my daddy's eye. His firstborn. His "Patty", he doted on her. What a remarkable person she was.

She looked a little grumpy here. But she never was. Always laughing, smiling and making everyone feel comfortable.
See her pretty smile. I think the day we lost her, my mother lost a part of her heart. It is just not normal that your child would pass away before you. Nine months after her untimely death, my mother passed away too.
See those long legs? My sis was blessed with beautiful long legs! She was nearly six feet tall! She got all the good qualities of our dad.
Such an angelic first communion picture. My sis was a straight arrow. She was always kind, never into any mischief and did not smoke or drink. She was a beautiful person with a pure soul. A woman of God, she studied her bible and knew the Lord well.
My sister and her men. She and my brother-in-law Gary raised five sons. She is holding her first born grandchild and only grandson, Joseph. She and Gary adored him and spent many years raising him. Today he is the father of a newborn baby girl. Oh my sister would be filled with joy! A great grand girl! She always said she would get her girls as grandchildren and was blessed with three Rachelle, Shelby and McKenzie.. A joyful mother, grandmother, wife and daughter as well as sister.

I love this photo of Pat. She is gorgeous.  She and Audrey Hepburn could pull off this short hairdo.  My sis spent years as a military wife and mother living in lots of different countries and eventually settling in Radcliff, Kentucky which she loved and called home until her untimely death.
Although I can not find a photo of myself with my two sisters here is one of my mom with my pretty sisters, from left, Mary, Pat and mom.
