Christy,
As long as I can remember you were there for me. You raced me home when a dog bit me, to take care of my wound. Christy, you entertained me with stories of the “Christmas Mouse”, you wrote yourself, or an imaginary friend, “Mary the Tooth Fairy”, who corresponded with me when I was lonely. You helped create my imagination. When I was sad you were always available for me to talk to. You were the “entertainment committee” for the neighborhood children, and you left an impression on many of them. I’m not surprised you became a teacher you started doing, just that, at such a young age. After school you were there to watch me and you taught me how to cook. Christy, you were like a mother who had just the fun responsibilities and none of the disciplinary ones.

I could go on and on, but the bottom line is, Christy, you made me the person I am today. I was blessed to have had you as my sister. You will always be a part of my memories and a part of my heart. I can’t wait to see you again, one day soon.

Love, your sister, “BB”
