I never imagined losing my only sibling would be this hard, or that my heart could be this broken, or that I had this many tears to cry. I never thought I could feel this defeated. In fact, I never actually did imagine it because in my head I was never going to let this happen. The last six months have been so very scary for all of us, and the last three weeks have been the hardest three weeks of my life. I hope you know how hard I tried to fight for you and that you know, that I know, how hard you fought for yourself the last few weeks. When I went to pick your stuff up from the rehabilitation center last Saturday the nurse said to me "I know how much you meant to him, it was obvious he cared a lot about you" that was so very powerful for me. I will never understand why God chose you, why it was your time or why you had to fight so hard. What I do understand is that now I have another angel looking over me and my Ryleigh, and that whenever I close my eyes I can see a lot of our memories, we spent a lot of time together the last 6 months and I am so grateful for that. I know that when you got to the gates our father was there welcoming you with open arms and that’s the only thought that seems to get me by these days. It’s been a long week but we have already received news that you have been able to save 3 people’s lives with your organ donations. 3 lucky people have a part of you that I’m so glad we could share. Sean, you have no idea how much you will be missed here, watch over me always, I love you-Cara. Please visit for further information.
