Yesterday I found out that my brother's first wife had died last month due to complications from a bladder infection.

I'd rather talk about Sylvia's life, though, not her death.  Sylvia and I were both 19 when she started dating Bruce.  She and I became fast friends, and we grew closer and closer throughout the years.

We played Dungeon & Dragons, went to parties, and made friends with male strippers.  Sylvia was with me during a lot of important events in my life, as was I in hers.

Sometimes it felt like we were more like sisters than simply sisters-in-laws.

I'll miss you, Sylvia.  I regret that we drifted apart during these past few years.

R.I.P., Sylvia.
