I waited thirty years for us

to put end to our search

for the family we

never had.

You wanted happy endings

The right thing done.

The insight that never came.

Our bond so deep, so fragile.

We waited too long my Sister.

And now, I shall never know
you.

A Death in my Family

Death comes suddenly.

I woke up this morning to a call from my Sister’s partner in Virginia.

My Sister had an accident on her way to work and was killed in a
collision with a truck.

JAMES CITY COUNTY, Va. – Authorities are investigating a fatal crash that occurred Thursday morning in James City County.

The crash occurred around 7:45 a.m. on Industrial Boulevard and Richmond Road and involved a tractor-trailer and a vehicle.

Preliminary investigation has revealed that a 2003 Ford Taurus driven by 59-year-old Sandra Sarah Dunaway, was headed eastbound on Richmond Road. In the area of Industrial Boulevard, the Taurus crossed over the media and hit a tractor-trailer head on.

The tractor-trailer was driven by a 40-year-old Yorktown man.

Dunaway, who was believed to not be wearing her seat belt, was pronounced dead at the scene. The tractor-trailer driver was not injured.

News 3

I am on my way to Virginia to say good bye to my Sister so I will be gone
from my blog though I may check in from my cell phone.

This is one of the few photographs I have of us as children.

In this photo Sandra is two and I am six.
