"I'll miss you."
"I'll miss you, too."
"It went way too quick" we say in unison.
And so goes another good-by between my sister and I.
We were born fourteen months apart and when we were younger people sometimes thought we were twins. We were pals through childhood and those awkward teen years. We had good times, we fought, we experienced life together.
For decades now, we have lived far from each other. Many states between us. But the bond remained and grows stronger as we experience the joys and trials of adult life.
Today we give a final hug goodby. I'll miss her so.
