    My sweet sister, I thank God for sharing you with me for 51 years. I never knew how much I loved you until you took your last breath. I will miss you like crazy but it gives me a great relief to know that you are whole again. No more suffering and no more pain. Save me a place and I’ll see you later. Don’t worry, I will take care of Brittany, Schyular and Dwight. I love you.

    Remember me when I am gone away, Gone far away into the silent land; When you can no more hold me by the hand, Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay. Remember me when no more day by day You tell me of our future that you planned: Only remember me; you understand It will be late to counsel then or pray. Yet if you should forget me for a while And afterwards remember, do not grieve: For if the darkness and corruption leave A vestige of the thoughts that once I had, Better by far you should forget and smile Than that you should remember and be sad.
