My sister my friend!
We were tied together at our hearts! We knew we were only a phone call away , for laughter or prayer.All the special little pep talks are tucked away in my heart.If I cried , you cried and if I laughed you laughed, we sure had sone good laughs, didn’t we?A smile is sort of hard to find right now, but I know it’s tucked away for now. One day I will have a big smile come across my face and realize , hey that was my sister making me smile again!Enjoy You’re Journey Sister , I know you already know how much I Love You!
