Our texts lol that Christmas break Casey and I stayed with you in Sweeny. We dyed your hair blue. Her half came out good while mine was uuuuuum…..let’s say not so good. Hahaha! I always loved hanging out with you. I miss you like crazy but so grateful to have the memories with you that I do from childhood up to the present. You were and will always be my big sister that I love with all my heart.

Booger Nose and I both love you so much. We both miss you so much and wish you were still here. I'll miss you attempting to still hold him like he's a baby,even though he's way bigger than you!
