Today is the 3 year anniversary since my little sister, Jodi, died of a prescription drug overdose. She was only 28 years old! Way too young. I've heard in the in the news that this has become a huge epidemic, especially for teens. Don't take pills unless you really need them! (Deborah, I'm watching you :-)
Anyway, Jodi had her problems, like all of us do, but she was also funny, goofy, wild, sleepy (most of the time), crazy fun, a good cook, and a fun Aunt to her (then) 9 nieces and nephews. Most of all, she was my best friend. She was 4 years younger than me, but we were always together....her school friends were my friends and my school friends were hers. I really miss our trips to Target, California, Oregon, Chilis, TGI Fridays, Tepenyaki, the Roy Aquatic Center, and all the times we'd sit around laughing and playing cards. Sadly, Nicholas won't get to go to Legoland with her or play "go fish" with her, but HE WILL know who she was.
We miss you, Jodi!
