To say goodbye is not easy, I loved you so much, you were such a loving ,kind and always caring big sister. I am so grateful for the many years that I had you in my life. You treated everyone of your brothers and sisters with love and respect. You cared deeply. As I grew older, you became my friend, someone that had a link to my past and the history between us holds such a strong bond , that can never be replaced. we could relate to each other on so many levels. I know you fought a good fight and battled this terrible disease for many years and continued to forge on always, never complaining. I pray you are at peace now with our Heavenly Father, no more pain, no more sorrow, or suffering, Perfect Peace that passes all understanding.
