This is the Day my sister was robbed of her life! Not 1 single day goes by that I do not think of her! She was 2 months shy of her 18th birthday that she was SO excited to have. You know I ALWAYS put on a smile and say everything's okay. But I MISS HER SOOOO MUCH!. This Day.. THIS NIGHT is ALWAYS going to be burned into my mind as if it was yesterday. I can see it all too clearly. I can remember her calling at midnight and asking if Milan was okay..Yeah Valencia.. it's midnight???... before we hung up.. Her saying, "I LOVE YOU!!" and I telling her back, "I LOVE YOU!".. Not knowing 2 hours later My sister would be murdered! I can remember being on the phone till 3:00 in the morning.. and my friend Loni sitting on the couch.. The moment I hung up the phone I could see the cop lights out the living room window... I jumped up and opened the door to see what they were doing. The 2 cops start walking up our driveway. They asked if my mom was home? I said told them YES.. But she is asleep!.. He told me, " You NEED to wake her up!".. My parents were heavy sleepers.. But I went in there and said, "Mom, there's 2 cops at the door." My Mother stood up so fast and said WHAT?????... She ran to the door... I remember just standing there and just starting at my mom as he began to read from his little note pad.. Do you have a daughter named Valencia Ramirez.. My mom responded, YES... Is she okay?.. He didn't answer.. next question.. Is her birthday.. October 21, 1975.. My mom TOLD HIM NO!!!! HE looked down and corrected himself...... I mean 1976..My mom looked and him with her hands together in a pleading way and asking him AGAIN.. IS SHE OKAY?????? He finally looked up at my mother.. looked her in her eyes.. and said, " No ma'am! YOUR daughters DEAD." My mom said "NO" and turned yelling down the hall.. I followed behind her and the 2 cops walking in too.. As we walked into my parents room.. My Dad was already standing up shaking his head. .My mom fell into his arms CRYING SOO HARD.. Jay was at the top of her bed ,legs shaking and crying!!! The cop told me to call the rest of my family and for us to leave... So I did.. I called my grandma first.. The sound in her voice dropped when I told her. She just said Noooooo.. Nooooo..and was crying.I Remember driving up to my grandparents house.....Man... NOW !! Remembering THAT moment RIGHT there. Is one of the MOST beautiful moments ever.. THERE was SOOOO much LOVe there... MY WHOLE family was there waiting for us....ALL MY AUNTS.. All MY UNCLES... ALL my COUSINS....
I miss my sister every single day... I am envious of people who have a sister.. I know I shouldn't.. but I am. Thank you for always remembering my sister... IT is soooo true tomorrow is NEVER promised...I am so grateful. I got to talk to my sister and tell her I Love her... We were always fighting over STUPID stuff.. The phone being the biggest.. ;) But I thank god for our moment.

4 Things you could NEVER get back!
The stone, after it's been thrown.
The word after it's been said.
The occasion after the loss.
The time after it's gone.

Don't Live your life with Regrets... Always say, I LOVE YOU. Let someone know how u feel.
