In memory of my sister, Caren

April 15, 1962—February 14, 2013

On Valentine’s Day, with so much attention focused on the the glitter of romantic love—chocolate, wine, roses, romantic dinners and extravagant gestures—we easily forget how much love lies in the grit of everyday life: friends and family who stand by us through challenging times, loved ones who care for us when we are ill or hurting. These gestures—from the heart—are love in the truest sense of the word.

Dearest Beth, as I look at the picture of you with Caren, I see joy and pride among the sorrow. You have been such an amazing sister and friend to her throughout the years…..and it shows in your direct gazes into the camera and in both of your determinations to smile through the toughest circumstances. I am honored to call you my friend, and am deeply touched with grief on your and your family’s behalf. Much love and light to you, my dear….Sherri
