The memory of my sister that I like to share is our movie night we would get together on Wednesday watch a movie that we both liked or TV show .and we would work in her greenhouse on our flowers we had a little business together . And we would talk for hours. I'm going to miss those days and especially those talks. But most of all I'm going to miss my sister and my best friend.
