Sis my heart is hurting so. So can’t get out of my mind meeting my big sis. That smile and kind hearted. I’m so glad I kept searching. Remembering our long talks and your laughter. Really hard to knowing you’re gone. You’re gone on to a better place. You earned your wings. Going to miss you sis. Carlo, Pontiac,MI
