You are my special angel

Kristin at this age was exactly as this smile shows; largely happy, looking forward to growing up and taking on the world. And all of us in the family knew she was special, in many ways more special than the rest of us. Not because of musical talent, or sports skills, or grades, but in the undefinable thing I call "human talent".

She could look you in the eye, and you knew that at that moment, you were her universe, and she was there to be in the moment with you, and listen, laugh, cry, or whatever it took to make you feel better.

I wish I had been there more for her.

I miss you, dear sister.
