My loving sister. You brought joy and happiness to my life. When Rudy passed you were there for me to lean on and turn to for support. You were always the best sister anyone could ever ask for. I've been missing you everyday since you left us. But you will never be forgotten in my heart and in my memories. I love you so much. I know you are with mom and dad and Ramon as well as rude dog. Put him in check sis. I love you i miss you. Till we meet again in heaven. All my love. 😢😢😢
