I am so sorry to hear of her passing. She was always so sweet and always had a smile on her face. I loved her positive attitude. My dad had the same type of cancer as she did. We would talk about it when she came through my line at Walmart. Prayers for the family. She will be missed.

My big sister,
You came into my life when i was young when mom ( Helen ) and Bill got married and our families were joined together and i had four new brothers and sisters to add to the four that i already had.
I never thought of you as a step sister because to me you were my sister even if it wasn't by blood but that didn't matter to me because you were my sister in my heart and i loved having another big sister...I loved having you as my sister.
I had four sisters and i always will have four sisters and you will always be one of my big sisters.
You were one of the most kind and caring and loving people that i have ever known and your smile could light up a room and that laugh was one that could make everyone around you smile and those hugs...those wonderful tight hugs that you gave and would always say to the person that you hugged
'' I love you ''
You had the biggest heart and never knew a stranger and treated everyone with such love and warmth and with your soft sweet voice always had time to pray for someone who needed prayer.
One of the things that i admired about you was your faith in God and even when you were sick and in pain you still held onto that faith and knew that god had you in his hands and would carry you through and you still smiled and said. '' GOD IS GOOD ''
The strength and courage that you showed was inspiring and you did it with true grace and elegance.
We may not have been able to see each other like we used to do but i always kept you in my thoughts,my prayers and in my heart and i loved you so very much and i missed you.
Now,i will miss you even more because now you are gone but i know that you are walking among the angels in heaven and with mom ( Helen ) and all of those in our family whose passed and the pain and sickness is gone and you and you are happy because you are with the Lord.
My heart is filled with saddness and i will mourn the loss of my sister
but just know i love you now and always.
