She would have been 43
My sister, Leilani Sitoy Nodado: April 19, 1966 - November 18, 2007
This is the public photo still posted on her Friendster account. I keep my own Friendster account active, though I never use it, just to maintain that digital link.
In our rented home on the Silliman University campus
in Dumaguete City, against the infamous musical instrument

She was a much better pianist than me.
I still play from time to time, though. 1976.
