My little sister

We were three sisters.I am the eldest. Three of us were very friendly. Never  did we imagine that the cruel hands of fate will snatch away the middle one  from us. The youngest is eight years  younger to me. I treat her like  my daughter. My children address her as 'Didi' instead of aunty. The second one, my little sister was dear to me. There was not a single day when we did not talk  on the phone. We discussed every thing on earth. Four years ago ,she  left for her heavenly abode. I miss you my little sister.

  3. Sisters are sometimes almost like best friends.
    I am the youngest in our house, I have two elder sisters and 1 elder brother. My second sister would always fight with me for simple things, and my eldest sister is 11 years older than me, she always treats me as her daughter.
    However, as years passed, we have lost the closeness which we had previously.
    I am so glad your relationship with your sisters have always been good.
    And I am sorry you miss your little sister.

  11. I am speechless, Usha-ji. Don't they say the ones close to us never leave us and they are forever here. I believe in this saying and experimented it also.

  17. It will be blasphemous for me if I'll say I don't have siblings as I am blessed with three cousin brothers,all younger and I can feel the searing pain of your loss. May her soul rest in peace.
