Sister, I miss you so much. Miss the phone calls and e-mails. However, I would not wish you back to go through all the pain you went through the past few years. Just looking at your beautiful picture and remembering the good times we had. Give Mark and my baby a hug for me over there. also the rest of the family. Love you so much.
