August 18, 2011 my sister delivered Brooklyn Kaye Papa. She was adorable! Sadly, she passed away on September 1st due to heart problems. I have volunteered for NILMDTS for years – but this is the first time where it has effected my own family. My sister called me before 5 a.m. on Thursday and I raced to the hospital. One by one all of my siblings came to the hospital and in the end, we were all there with my parents and Brooklyn. Her memorial service was last week and we played this slide show at the service. Even though she was only here for two weeks – she has changed me as a person and touched my life in a way no one else could have.
