"For My Little Brother
You showed me a lot of things
I learned a lot But I didn't know
but you forgot to teach me one thing how to let you go
I know you didn't mean to leave me
Sometimes we have no choice
I miss being your big Sister
Hearing my Name called by your voice
I wish I got to say I love you
before you were given to the sky
If God could grant me one wish I'd ask to say Goodbye
you always meant a lot to me
I could never love you less
I know its true when they say he only takes the best
Love
Your big Sister

for you and Mom for your Birthdays  and Mom for Mothers day
They are from her Children Leo Marlene and Diane  I always remember the good time we shared and how happy Mom was when she lived in California and Florida and then with Leo and Diane she always had a car but when It broke down she had no car  in new jersey I still have all those letters she wrote when she was in California I think she was really happy there  And Florida
I remember when I used go to new Jersey and we went shopping with the coupons and how she Had to Drive from Doris House around the block then let me drive its sad kind of that Mom had to sneak then Why?
I think she was afraid of her when she was here she had to call her because she wanted to stay for Elayne Birthday I could Of Kept her but I took her home as she said she had to go home  and I would never do that to her she was so weak when she got here and she was weaker on the way to N J
