My Sweet Sister....You gave me more love than anyone could imagine. I always introduced you as my "Little Big Sister" ! You were so happy when we could get together and had such memorable times. You not only gave me Sister Love, but even though we were only 10 years apart, you gave me Mother Love too. I will miss you so much, and will see you in Heaven.
