I lost my sister on February 25, 2019. I’ll never forget I got a phone call while I was at work at the time I was pregnant with my first child beautiful boy. Family was calling me and texting me I didn’t know what was going on and then my cousin FaceTimed me and he told me that she was gone. My body went numb and I fell to the floor. The week before her and I had words exchanged and I told her she was dead to me and then a week later she passed from overdose heroin mixed with fentanyl. Not a day goes by I don’t think about her she has beautiful son that she left behind parents and his sister but most of all losing her last week it be one year of February 25, 2020 not an hour not a minute not a second goes but I don’t think about her. She was my everything and I just pray that one day these drugs don’t exist but I know they’ll never be a day that I will have have her in my life. The jokes are used to make laughter and the tears the hugs kisses the text messages I even have her voicemail saved but I listen to. I will forever miss ❤️My Rib❤️ I have learned a lesson that words do kill and I just pray to God that she forgives me because losing her I lost me.
