LUCKY WAS HIS NAME, MY SISTER WASN'T SO LUCKY

I THINK OF HER OFTEN

WELCOME TO PASTOR DR. CARLOTTA'S COUNSELING CENTER.

 

The story that is being told is true.

The nightmare began one day while I was at home relaxing in my living room in 1989. I was siting in my recliner when all of a sudden I felt a strange feeling that came over my body. The feeling was a concern for my sister, a feeling that something was wrong! All of a sudden without warning I jumped up shouting her name DEDE! There were two young gentlemen there with me that was startle and run to my side.

 

I called my mother and asked her has she seen my sister and she said, "now that you mention it, I haven't seen her why do you ask?" I went on in explaining to her my terrible feeling I had while relaxing at home. I asked her could she please go to her house since she was closer to where she lived and check on her. She told me she would go and get back with me later.

 

After 30 mins. or more my mother called and told me my sister wasn't home but her lights, T.V. and the fan was on and it smelled in there. But no sister in sight! I asked her how did she get into her apartment? She told me the door was unlocked! She said she was going back home and would check back with her later.

 

After hanging up my phone, I sat down wondering why was her door unlocked, where is my sister and why did I have that terrible feeling that came over me. Still worried, I called my mother back and told her that something wasn't right, go back!

She did but this time she took my other sister with her. As they approach her door again, the door was still unlocked and as they walked in, that same smell was still lingering through my sister's apartment. My mom called me and told me about the smell and that's when I told her to call the police. After she did she called me back and I asked to speak with my sister. I ask my sister to open the closet while I was on the other end of the phone.

 

As I was waiting on the phone for a response from my other sister, a loud scream I heard and then silence. My heart started beating faster, harder, and then the news that I didn't want to hear came true! My sister came back on the phone saying, "she's in the closet dead!" Hog tied with duck tape over her mouth and nose! I lower my head as I sat with the phone dangling in my hand. She was just 29 years old.

 

Have you every wondered how you would deal with a death of a family member?

Her outcome of this death was because of her drug use and trust. I tell this story because my sister was dating a young man that was a killer that already served 18 years in prison for killing two people prior to dating her and she knew it. I often wonder what was she thinking, that he would not kill her? She was on drugs and he was too! Drugs will alter your thinking, make you think your invulnerable!

 

Lucky is now in prison again, this time with life without parole. He was eligible for the death penalty but our lawyer said not to go for this because he could appeal it years down the road and not get it. Instead we ask for life without parole.

In our journey in this life we must be alert, discerning, in prayer, watchful, wise, and most of all in Jesus Christ. BE WISE IN YOUR DECISIONS! I often wonder, did my sister ever accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior, this was my main concern for her. I truly miss her. I love you DeDe.

 

If you haven't accepted Christ as your Savior simply say in an audible voice, in all sincerity from the depths of your heart, "Lord Jesus Christ, forgive me of my sins and accept me as Your child. I accept You as my personal Savior and I promise to follow the instructions of Your Word from this day on. If I fail because I am human, please help pick me up so I can try again! Thank you, Jesus, for saving me from all my sins. AMEN."
