This is Heather Niles, my sister. She passed away one week ago; it still feels like only moments ago. I don’t know how I feel about her death, expected though it was. I loved her and hated her as only a sister could. I pay tribute to her tonight: the moments we had and the moments we will never have. Some day I’ll see this as the turning point it is, but right now all I see is a continuum of our love.
