Love.

I love my sister. I love her with all my heart. I miss her too.

Katie, my sister for those of you who aren't paying attention, is my favorite person. Granted...it took over 20 years for her to be my favorie person. I love her more than I love anybody else.

I have to tell you that she and I did not get along growing up. We were enemies. We would fight and bitch and complain and accuse and beat and tickle and scream. I'm glad to report that, although she lives many hundreds of miles away, we don't do that anymore.

Katie moved in with my Dad when I was a senior in highschool. I was forced to be the mama's boy. I was a bit sad. She and I have been through so much together... A divorce changes a lot.

Anyway...I love Katie more than I love myself...and that's saying a lot. She is my rock (and she doesn't even know it.) I respect her, I envy her, I love her husband, I love her commitment to life, love and happiness, I love her.

Katie...I know you read this and that is not why I'm writing all of these things. Honest. I love you so much honey and I miss you terribly.

Don't fret, though...I am totally going to share some awful stories about you. Hot potatoes and all.

I love you...much more than you know.

Joe- I love you too you silly pooh! You mean the world to me and I'm so glad that we have become close again after all these (22) years, haha! I think the last time we got along this well I was 3 and you were 5. You dropping me and breaking my ankle started it all:0) But then us opening up to one another made things right again!

I envy you as well, your strength, your loving heart and above all else your honesty! Although sometimes I'd rather you just keep your mouth shut!!! (hello mustache) You are the best brother ever, and I am lucky to have you in my life!

I love you- Kate
