Day 27 Missing You
Yesterday, my sister-in-law succumbed to her battle with cancer.
She passed from this world into another at 6:22 p.m.
Ann Smith Durbin
married my brother in June 1968
and we have been great friends since the day we met.
They had three daughters who I have adored
and five grandchildren.
She always, and I mean always,
put her family first in every respect.
She also was an avid dog lover.
Tim and Ann always had dogs, usually rescue dogs.
They loved them and they were definitely were family.
She had a love of bulldogs
and Daisy is her latest love.
Today in honor of Ann, I painted her dog Daisy.
Anyone who knows me,
knows I am terrified of dogs.
When I went to see Ann last week all the dogs were outside for me.
Then Daisy came in.
There were people all over the house,
in every chair,
on every sofa,
in every corner of the house.
Where do you think Daisy had to go?
She had to come straight to me and look up at me with those sad eyes.
I'm sure Daisy is missing Ann today.
So am I.
