Good-bye my Julie...

What a hard emotional night this was. I had to say good-bye to my dear sister Julie. It was so hard on the whole family. Lots of tears and heavy hearts as we said our final good-bye's. There are no words to express just how much we will miss her and how painful it will be to have her so far away. I haven't been able to stop crying. I really want to be happy for her starting out a new life in Tennessee with Justin, who we love. It's the selfish part of me that thinks of all I will miss out on with her. I have such fun memories of being with my sisters. We all honestly love being together. There will be such an emptyness with her gone. We need her! She is our funny girl. I hope and pray that it will be no longer than 2 years.
Julie...You better email me all the time and send pictures. I will take over the bossy sister position on a temorary basis while you're gone. Somebody has to do it and I like the power of that. :o) I love you to pieces! (((hugs))) Jolene
P.S. We took tons of family pictures that I will share later when I'm not so tired and emotional. Gotta get some sleep!

You're such a good sister Jolene.

Tennessee. Sounds like you'll be making a trip to the east? Hmmm. What part?

Those goodbyes are so difficult. I have a sister who lives in South Africa and I'm lucky if I see her once a year. I know what you're going through - just remember all the good times and email is a wonderful thing! Where would we be without it!!
