    I was so shocked and saddened to hear about Sis.It was such a pleasure taking care of her at Lakebridge. Though she couldn’t speak, we heard her loud and clear. I will miss her nightly walks and wonderful expressions,especially regarding my hair. She let me know real quick when I was having a bad hair day. She was a special lady and it is so sad to go down the hall and not see her in her room. I will keep you all in my prayers. You are a wonderful family. Thanks for bringing Sis into our lives. May God bless you all. With love, Donna Lindsay,RN

    Sis and Mom were first cousins, neighbors, best friends. I’ve heard many stories about Sis in her youth so when I hear her name, I visualize her and mom as little girls on adjoining farms in the Boones Creek community. Without the technology we have today they used their imaginations to pass the time. Last Friday, not knowing that Sis would die that day, Pam and I took Mom to the doctor. On the way back Pam who was driving looked at the clouds and saw a Dragon. Mom, sitting in the front seat looked and with school girl excitement saw the same creature and described its head and tail. She said that when she was a little girl, she and Sis would stand on the plank fence and look up in the clouds and pick out animals and faces. Then when I heard of Sis’s passing I wondered if she might have been sending a message in the clouds that a best friend would recognize. “Hey girl! I’m in a new home. Things are better here. You’ll see.”

    One of the things I missed the most since Mom died was the daily visits at mealtimes and seeing the friends Mom and we had made while she was there. I’m so glad I got to see Sissy again the week before she passed. I always loved to see her. She was a precious lady who had a wonderful family that made sure she knew she was loved and her needs met. My sympathies to each of the family–you were a real testament to the kind of person Sissy was! God bless each of you and give you comfort and peace.
