R.I.P. my dear sister

Hello fellow stitchers

I have sad news...
My only sister Janis was in the hospital for 17 days before she gave up her fight.
She had not been to a doctor for 30 years, so when she asked my dad to take her to the hospital
her liver was already so damaged. She basically waited till the pain got to her.
She was never married, no children. She passed away monday night June 4th with me, mom and dad beside her. My brothers arrived shortly after. She was 62 years young. We had no idea she didn't feel well for years, but friends and co-workers did. We laid her to rest today. She suffers no more.
My brothers and I have been working hard cleaning out her apartment this week, Thank goodness she wasn't a pack rat. Now there is all the paper work with the bills and her accounts, it's hard with her having no will made out.
Thanks for the emails checking on me and sorry if I didn't back to you. It's been a hectic three weeks with no blogging and no stitching. I have over 700 blogs in my google reader, not sure what I will do there as it will take me days to play catch up.
Well, it's time to get some sleep, oh how I wish I could just sleep all day tomorrow, but Kellie has a softball club tournament 9am and it's 2 hours away. I'm so drained.
I wanted to take a few minutes to let you all know whats been up with me.
Thanks so much for all the FaceBook prayers for my family too.
I'll be back sometime with some stitchiness updates when I have some
Goodnite and God Bless
