In Loving Memory
April 24, 1956 - September 18, 2001
Jill was my double cousin. Her mom was my mom's sister, and her dad was my dad's brother. When I was a little girl, Jill explained this relationship to me by telling me we were "almost sisters". We both enjoyed that special connection and we would remind each other as we were growing up..."almost sisters". I think it was extra special for Jill because she didn't have any sisters of her own. (She had 3 brothers.)
Last September, Jill died from a lung infection which was complicated by emphysema caused by years of smoking. I had just talked to her two days before and she hadn't even mentioned being ill. She died at home. She was 45.
This is my mom holding baby Jill. Mom was about 15.
