To the family of Lissa Depew,
I am so sorry for your loss. I know she will always be in your hearts❤️. I do know what it is like to loose a sibling. It leaves you stunned.
Like you are waiting for them to call you or walk through the door. It is an emotional rollercoaster. You remember the good times and if they were sick you help take care of them. Take one day at a time. If you need to cry, then cry
don't let anyone tell you not to or get over it because you don't. You live each day without them in it. It can hurt, rip you apart. But thank God every day you get through. Thank him for everything you have. Then you look back and it has been 19 years since they left. Hard to believe YOU have survived that long. May God bless you all and give you peace. Again I am very sorry.
