Memories will see me through

-A A +A
By Carolyn Ten Broeck

Midmorning Feb. 5, a dark veil slipped over a large portion of my heart, permanently blocking the light that has shone so brightly in my life for 20 years.

When Denise escaped this world after a brief second go-around with cancer, a part of me died too – perhaps one of the best parts of me.

More than a co-worker or friend, Denise was my sister in all the ways that mattered. Though we were born of different parents, we may as well have been blood sisters for all the things we shared, from childhood to the grave. The similarities were uncanny from tastes in books to food to upbringing. There were more similarities than differences.

We thought so much alike that my son, Nick, when only a young teenager noted that Denise and I shared half a brain cell. This weekend Nick whispered in my ear he wasn’t sure how I would fare with only a quarter now.

I’m not either.

What I do know is how blessed I am to have had her in my life.
