Jennifer

I figured out the scanner.  Here are her young pictures...  This is my memorial to her.

She was such a happy child.  I delighted in every move she made.

When she was very young, she loved to play peekaboo with me.  The box is where the christmas ornaments were kept.  When it was empty, she loved to hide in it an pop up.

In no particular order...

This is the most precious picture I have of her...Absolute happiness.  She loved that Raggedly Ann doll for many years.

Drinkin the Big Brother drink... Above.  And wearing my hat,  She loved that.  She always thought my hats were special.  Wearing my hat always made her feel great.

One of her earliest moments.  That is Hai U Phin in the doll bed.  Jen loved that cat.  As did I.

Jen asleep in my old bed.  She always liked my red and yellow walls. 
Jen posing for a picture.  She loved to be photographed.  I wish I had taken a 1,000 more,,,

 Jen with Hai U Phin...
 The oldest picture I have...  Jen as a teenager.
 My dear little sister Jen...  44 years old, gone forever...
The spots in the photo are accidents of time.  But I want to think of them as stars in the cosmos.  She deserves to go out with all the stars around her.  She would have liked the idea of "cosmic"...

Intelligent, organic, loving, good mother, friend...

Farewell good sister, good friend...  My life is emptier without you in it.

How sweet! Thank you for sharing these with us... I love that she used to sleep in your bed--I used to sneak into my sister's bed when I was little, only I cuddled the cat instead :)

Hugs to you...

What lovely pictures. You must have wonderful memories of her childhood, Big Bro. I'm sure you enriched her life as much as she did yours.

Thinking of you!

I lost my brother some time ago. I wish I had the picture you have. I know it seems trite, but you will recover. Take your time tho, she deserves to be mourned.
