Dearest Heather,

Today is your birthday.

You would have been 30.

I wonder how they celebrate birthdays on the other side.  Or if they celebrate them at all.

I do know I’ll be thinking about you all day long, and we’ll be eating a cupcake  just for you today.

I can’t believe it’s been 3 years since you left this earth.

And yet it seems like it was just yesterday.

I still cry with the same intensity, on the rare occasion I actually cry.  But I do still cry.

And I miss you the same as I did 3 years ago.

Happy Birthday, my lovely sister.
