March 19 1997.
Donette R. White Passed away in a tragic car accident in Nebraska.
Donette is my sister.
Its been 13 years since she passed away.
How has it been that long?
Donette is amazing,
a little weird,
she was a photographer and took amazing pictures. she was going to Utah state to get her degree. she was living a full life. she was only 19 years old.
her time came. she fulfilled her mission in this world.
i still remember that day.
i remember the last day i ever saw her.
i try to remember those details about her but hate that i cant remember.
i was 9.
my mind then is not the same now.
i don't remember things i wish i could remember now.
i do know her face.
i do know her smile.
i do know her heart.
i do know her love.
she is wild.
i miss her hugs- she had awesome hugs.
the kind that was strong, she would pick you up and spin you around.
it wasn't those wimpy, pat on the back hugs.
she lovvves her family-
she adored her siblings.
of course jonathan was her favorite- i think he was/is everyones favorite :)
i miss her crazy ways-
i miss our spaghetti o's-
i miss our ren and stimpy-
i miss her voice.
i can only remember one time her getting really pissed at me I'm sure there are many more times (lets face it- I'm a brat) but i can only remember this one.
she was visiting from school, i smelled smoke on her and got mad.
broke into her car, stole all 4-5 packs of cigarettes, broke everyone of them in half and threw them in the garbage. ha!
a bit later she pulls me aside and quietly- YELLS at me.
hey- how'd she know i did it :)
she was grabbing my arm so tight- i don't know why i remember that.
all i kept thinking was, well then- don't smoke!
** Told you I'm a brat- thinking I can control everyones life.
I talk to Donette ALOT. I always have. Since Kenzie got sick I talked to her MUCH more.
I ask her to watch over Kenzie, I ask her to hold her and play with her. I know she will make sure Kenz knows how much I love her and I know she probably will never let anyone else hold her- I think about them together. I just pray they are both so happy. I know they are in love.
Its been a long 13 years.
Life has changed tremendously in these 13 years.
I think about who Donette would be today.
I think about how she would be with all her nieces and nephews = totally infatuated with them.
She was always the life of the party-
I'm sure they are partying it up in Heaven!
