cat-in-mug

I know this technically isn’t a “message” but it’s the last thing I received from my younger sister, Emily. She passed away in June 2014 after battling ocular melanoma for three years – she had just graduated from high school three days earlier. Christmas 2014 my grandmother had my mom and I open two gifts that Emily had bought for us earlier in the year - that my grandmother had forgotten about until she started wrapping presents. This was one of them. This cat mug is the greatest single possession I will ever have because it was given to me by my sister six months after her death. Wherever she is now, I know she was just saying “I love you.”
