I just got a call from an IL coroner who informed me that my half-sister Bea died early this morning. I guess I'm still numb. We shared a father so I didn't grow up with her and didn't get to see her much growing up. But we connected as adults to some degree. We regretted not growing up together and felt that the chance to do so was stolen from us by adults who couldn't get along with each other. (A cautionary divorce tale there...) She was only 3 years older than I am. I was kind of braced for the possibility because she had both heart disease and diabetes so I knew her health wasn't good. They suspected a clot of some sort but may know more later.
