My tribute to them is to honor my little sister. She is a loved one of mine that passed away, not on Sept. 11th, but I hope that now is an appropriate time to talk about her. Anne Nicole died as a 3 week old baby from trisomy 18. (I am still not exactly sure what that is, I just know that she was born with a lot of complications.) I was three at the time, so I only have a few memories of her alive. She would be 17 if she were here today. My younger sister Karren, who is only 15, has grown so tall and beautiful, that I can't imagine the babe that Anne would be right now. I do know that I got married on her birthday this year--Aug. 22nd. We certainly had a big celebration on her day, but I never got the chance to tell her happy birthday this year because I was too busy enjoying being married for the first time! So, even though I hate being late for events, I still believe in the quote "better late than never." Sorry it is late Anne, but Happy Birthday!! I love you!
