What words could I say that would express how I am feeling. As I sit with pen at hand my mind goes back to the beginning of our first meeting. I can't think of a day that it was not shared with you. Even though you were given obstacles that didn't stop you. In so many ways you taught me early on to let nothing stop me. God never makes a mistake. He chose my grandparents to be there for you to show no difference,: but gave enough Love to learn that we are all born with a handicap, but it's what we do with it that counts. I always look to you as my sister and until now I guess you were not only that but was also my Aunt. In all , you were so humble and I know we will never understand why but I know in my God has given you your wings and when he returns you will be the first to rise in Christ and your sister, my mother and I will see you again. I love you more than you will ever know
