A Toast

to my younger sister, who would have been 22 on Saturday and passed away from suicide 10 years ago today.  Words cannot do this child justice.  She was one of the most interesting people I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet, and we miss her dearly. Many thanks to my friend D who was the best friend my sister ever had, to my brother-of-choice who is my link between past and present, and to my best friend who is there no matter what.
