I MISS MY BIG SISTER, VIRGINIA SMITH TAYLOR (“JENNY”), SO MUCH. I WAS OBEDIENT UNTIL THE END:
From: JoAnne Smith Hooks Blog Site
When you and I were texting each other with laughter in each text at 2:06am Thursday morning, April, 22, 2021. You told me you were going to bed because of the late hour and we would talk tomorrow. Jen, I am still waiting on tomorrow. We said, I love you good night not good-bye.
Jen, when you sent my birthday gift Saturday, April 17, 2021 and you told me not to open the box until May 5th I thought you were punishing me…lol.. I was devastated. As I sat starring at that box, I called you to ask could I please open it? Jen, you knew it would be difficult for me pass by that box every day for 3 weeks not knowing what was inside. You broke and said, “Yes, I could open it.” I discovered there was a beautiful RED SUIT inside. I pursued by begging you to allow me to wear it to church on Sunday because I had to make a video? You said, “Yes.”
On Thursday morning at the 2:06am, which was our last text you went in on Facebook to see me in the RED SUIT and told me it was a nice fit.
Jen, since you did not see me with the RED SUIT on in person. This is what I have decided to do. On Saturday, May 1, 2021 if it is the Will of the Lord, I will say my farewell to you by wearing that RED SUIT to celebrate you in Arkansas. After that day Jen, I will not need to wait on the tomorrow because I feel that the Holy Ghost will give me closure. I pray you are reading my message, right now. I just want to say, I love you and I miss you so much, Big Sister!
