My darling big sis. Words cannot express how empty a feeling one gets when someone passes that you know full well, without a doubt, loved you immeasuarably. I know that you were fully aware that you meant the WORLD to me too!

Although you and I were late finding one another in life, our bond was strong. Some of my most memorable moments in life involve me, Mama and Papa Lee packing up the car in Belton to go down and see you and Joe in Houston. I knew when I got there I could have a ball with you listening to old Elvis Presley records while delighting in watching you dance! You certainly had a great impact on me regarding music. Once I had a musical gig of my own, I could ALWAYS count on my big sis to come out and support me to the fullest... every chance you got. That meant so much to me sis. You were certainly my biggest fan!

Sister, you know full well that it pains me at this moment not to be there with you now bidding you a proper farewell. This year has been a true plague in more ways than one! However, no matter where I stand on this Earth sister, my heart is with you always. The "big-sisterly" love that you showed for me all these years is something I shall NEVER forget.

I love you always and forever, my darling sister, Beatrice Josepine :) xxx
