My dearest brother, I will miss you so much. You were a great brother to me. I am thankful to have had you in my life. I know you loved me and I truly loved you. It's so hard to give you up, but I will always remember my times with you and how much you meant to me.

We must part ways for now, but I know that I will see you again in Heaven. I love you forever. Rest in peace brother, until I see you again.

Love, your sis.
