Oh this made me cry when it got to the part where your sister was killed. How heart-wrenching. If this is a true story, I am so sorry for your loss, and I am so thankful you had the courage to write this letter/tribute. Very powerful and moving. Well done. From one little sister to another.

This is simply lovely. I know she would be so proud of the lovely tribute, not only to her, but to your entire family in your wonderful book. I really feel close to you now, Helen, for I was actually called the odd-one-out by my sister. She seems to have more drive and talent than I ever had. She is 4 yrs. older than me. Another great article. Linda

Now that the challenge is over, I can reveal the fact that this IS a true story. You know me, Helen. My siblings are Clara, the person this letter is written to; Evelyn, my next sister, who spent her life as a missionary to India, and is now living with us; Alfred, my brother, and next to me in age; Marianne and Pauline, the "little kids" in this story...Just wanted you to know, now that the challenge is over...Yes, Clara, we all miss you...See you some day soon, with all the other family members who have gone on before...Helen

Now I am sitting here with tears in my eyes... what a wonderful story...and as I was reading, I was aware that this was true... I think all of your siblings would have been very proud of you.
