This beautiful girl/woman is my sister, Lora. She was my first sister. When my parents told me we were adding to our family I wanted a girl. I remember at five being excited when she could roll over and sit up on her own. I thought that was awesome.

We did not always get along. And her ability to sell ice to Eskimos allowed her to convince our younger sister, Melissa, that I was, in fact, the Boogieman. We have quite the past the two of us, but it has been great to be her sister and friend.

Lora is amazing because of her ability to rescue you at moments you didn’t know you needed to be rescued. She has been there for me more than I can possibly put in this post, but I’m certainly glad she is my sister. Plus, she is ridiculously funny. I’ve never known one person who thought Lora was anything but.

She has recently moved out of the state to start a new adventure.  She is very much missed here, but we are so excited for her.  We hope that she has the best time while she is out there.

(Dad says her room might or might not be available when she comes back, but I'm sure that's just teasing... right Dad?)

Meanwhile I'll just call her after Sons of Anarchy and we can discuss what we just saw. If she isn't too busy.

Much love to my sister!
I'm so very proud of her!
Love her awesome music taste!

This will always remind me of her (and there were many to choose from)
