In loving memory of my sister, Meggan


Today marks the 17th anniversary of my sister's, Meggan, tragic death. My cousin's, Mike, girlfriend and a dear friend to me, Stef, told me about this song by Kenny Chesney and pretty much hit the way I feel at this time of year and every year without her. Just wanted to share it with all.

Who You'd Be Today (By Kenny Chesney)
Sunny days seem to hurt the most
Wear the pain like a heavy coat
I feel you everywhere I go
See your smile, I see your face
I hear you laughing in the rain
Still can't believe your gone






(Chorus:)
It ain't fair you died to young
Like a story that had just begun
But death tore the pages all away
God knows how I miss you
All the hell that I've been through
Just knowing, no one could take your place
Sometimes I wonder, who you'd be today

Would you see the world
Would you chase your dreams
Settle down with a family
I wonder what would you name your babies
Some day's the sky's so blue
I feel like I can talk to you
And I know it might sound crazy

(Chorus)

Today [3x]
Today [3x]

Sunny days seem to hurt the most
I wear the pain like a heavy coat
The only thing that gives me hope
Is I know, I'll see you again someday

Someday, someday

Oh, Jen...the first time I heard that Kenny Chesney song a few years ago I thought of her right away. Seeing it on your blog today gave me chills...and that family portrait of you guys from 89...that's right after we moved to Palatine and exactly how I remember her.

Thinking of you today and often...she was actually one of the first thoughts I had this morning b/c I knew what day it was and will never forget. Please give everyone my love esp your Mom today and send hugs for me... Sending lots of love your way, Jessica :)
