This is my mom Jean holding my big sister Debby but if you enlarge it you will see my mom is pregnant with me so this would be mine and deb's first picture together. This was taken on South 6th st in Lafayette, IN about 1967 or 68. This was a beautiful  gift given to me by our child hood friend Cindy Stanifer.

Final Resting Place

Shared by Tina Knight on November 29, 2013

My sister and my nephew and grandmother's final resting place. I hope with all my heart they have found peace. I hope matt is behaving. July 5th 2013 when we buried Debby and Matt with my grandmother I brought my sister a card flowers and ballons for her 48th birthday which was the day before. I also placed a rosery around both of them to help protect them and keep them safe, it was my last gifts to my big sister.

Balloons for my sissy

Shared by Tina Ann Wilkerson Knight on November 21, 2013

I decided since we were burying my sister the day after her birthday that I would send her balloons and a card and fly it up to heaven for her. I hope she saw it. I have never cried so much for one person in all my life. I thought the loss of my dad then my mom hurt, that was nothing compared to losing my big sister. It has now been about 7 months since she left and went home to be with our parents, grandparents, great Aunts and great uncle and son and it still hurts as much today as it did the day she went home. I would have taken her place if god would have let me and I still feel that way today.

This is Dezi, Matt's oldest daughter and my sisters oldest granddaughter. This was taken July 16th 2012. Not sure why she was so dressed up but my sister and myself both commented on the bright red lips, our mom always would put on bright red lipstick and we both said that was a mom trait she got from our mom even though dezi had never met her. 

Pink Roses for my big sister

Shared by Tina Ann Wilkerson Knight on November 19, 2013

I bought and had delivered to goodwin's a boque of Pink roses for my sister the day of her funeral. The card I had made out simply read WELCOME HOME DEBBY LOVE MOM, DAD AND GRANDMA!!! I know this is what my parents and grandma were saying as they welcomed her home.

This was the last time our parents were ever together in the same room at the same time. Debby and I wanted them to sit together but both of them refused to sit next to each other. This was taken right after my high school graduation in june of 1986. Now that I look back on this picture it's weird that Debby held Matt and I held Eric, who knew that 27 years later that both Debby and Matt, dad and mom would all be gone and the only people still alive are my Nephew Eric and myself. 

Sister's and CoWorkers

Shared by Tina Knight on November 14, 2013

When Debby and I started working at WM we lied and said that we were just friends that lived together, we said that because we believed that they wouldn't hire both of us because we were related so we sorta fibbed a little. We worked there about a year before anyone knew that we were sisters and it was a little old lady that told on us. She put on her call light and my sister and I went to check on her and a few other girls walked in with us and she looked at my sister and looked at me and said you too are sister's and my sister and I looked at each other and denied it but she laughed and smiled and said you might have fooled them but I can see you are sisters. Later on that night another Nurse came into the room I was in and said "So Tina how long have you and Debby been sister's. I looked at her like she was the dumbest person on the face of this earth and said to her with a strait face "since Birth". I proceeded to walk around her and out the door rolling my eyes. LOL...
