Bittersweet day today

evatxJuly 27, 2005

Today's my birthday. My daughter was born on my birthday, so I still have a birthday mate, but it's still hard for me to celebrate without my twin sister. Please keep Neva in your thoughts today - I lost her 5 years ago to cancer.

I can tell you still miss her terribly. My heart aches for you. Sisters are very special, and twins even more so. I hope the day went well.

My thoughts are with Neva and with you. I have trouble with New Year's Eve, which was my late step-sister's birthday, but I can't imagine what missing your own twin must be like. I know you celebrate her life.

I'm sorry, Eva. I hope your day wasn't too bad. How wonderful to have your daughter's birthday on the same day as yours. Maybe there is a reason for that. :-)
Hopefully, it helped you get through missing your dear twin sister as much.

Eva, I knew your birthdays were coming up pretty soon, but I didn't realize that I had missed it. Hope you had some great memories of your sister and happier days with her.

Happy Birthday to you, Eva, and to your DD.
