Remembering Wendy

Today I am deviating slightly off topic to remember someone integral to who I am - my twin sister Wendy. We were born 15 minutes apart and were identical twins. Yes, we had our own language and could re-count stories of feeling each other's pain. She was my best friend and really my other half for many years. To this day I still walk down the sidewalk to the right, not in the middle.
Today is a sad day for me as it is one year ago today when we lost Wendy to cancer. I miss her terribly.
This is why I enjoy following twin blogs like Double Happiness, Salsa and others. They are a joy for me to peek into their happiness and a healing balm for me as well.

I'm so sorry for your loss. And such a recent loss of a woman much too young to not leave the rest of the world feeling horribly cheated out of all of her gifts. I know you must ache and I think it's a lovely thing that you still walk down the sidewalk as though she's beside you. Really, I believe she is.

How wonderful to remember your sister through the tribute on your blog. I believe you still walk to the right because you are still sharing that sidewalk with your sister, only it's in spirit now.

Honey, I didn't follow you yet back in April 2009 and I only came here today from your 2010 post.

How my heart breaks for you. I just LOVE these pictures of you and your Wendy. I cannot imagine what it feels like to lose your twin. What you said about walking on the right of the sidewalk just brought it all right home to me.

My goodness you girls were just gorgeous together.

I am so sorry for you loss.
