My sister, my mother’s daughter, her children’s mother, my wife’s sister in law, our children’s aunt and to those of you reading this, your forever friend Vanessa Dawn Morgan has left this world.  I say… THIS SUCKS!  My sister was everything to me so I would like to share some of my favorite memories of her. I love that she and I used to sit and watch Love Boat, MASH, The Million Dollar Man, I Dream of Genie and cartoons instead of doing our chores.  In the summer, our TV show marathons would preoccupy our days together until… uh oh Nessa… What time is it? We would blast into hyper speed, washing dishes, laundry, picking up dog poop and vacuuming the floor.  Always in record time, 30 mins before mom and dad got home. We made it happen together because we were a team.  And because we were a team that meant she went to all my band concerts and I went to all her dance recitals.  If you’ve ever been to a dance recital, you know that it consists of a very LONG day just to witness a very SHORT performance by your sister that you’ve undoubtedly seen already a million times.  Gosh darn it, they were tough, but looking back it made her so happy. I love that she and I were constantly messing with each other. I took pleasure in doing all the tormenting things that big brothers do to their little sisters, and Nessa never missed her opportunity to deliver a whopping dose of payback. Her biggest payback was squeezing an entire toothpaste tube up into my nose while sleeping. Holy crap that burned!  Just another sign of our love for each other and if pain is any indication of how much you love someone…Nessa must have loved the crap out of me!  I love my sister so much and I will miss her every day for the rest of my life. Her life helped shape mine and I am much of who I am today because of her. Thinking of the fun we had throughout our lives makes me smile and I can still see all her many smiles.  The smile of pride when she watches her kiddos play, her smile filled with laughter when joking around, her tough girl smile when we she’s trying to hide something difficult and the smile that lit up her eyes when seeing the people she loved most after time apart. I will remember them all.  She is the greatest sister ever… sorry to all the other sisters of the world…but mine holds the #1 spot.  I LOVE YOU SESSA… Until I see you someday again...

Love you always,

Your big brother Dennis….
