A Loss in my Family

On Christmas Day, I found my sister in her house. She had died from apparent natural causes at least 7-10 days prior. She was only 47. I had had a horrible feeling about her and after unsuccessfully trying to reach her, decided to go down to see her. We had made plans to visit on the 26th but something bothered me. I have a very heavy heart as I feel that if I had gone down to see her when I first couldn't reach her, I could have saved her but that is something I will never know definitively, and maybe that is a good thing.

I haven't done a memorial yet as I am having many problems processing this loss. She is my last living relative that cared about me and was near me. She was not just my sister but my friend and I feel her loss deeply. I can barely function at all.

I'd like to ask that my family and I be kept in your prayers, and also, pray for her soul to rejoin God, or whatever way you define the "wellspring of all creation."

Thank you!

Hugs, Christina
