My beautiful sister, before you could walk I stretched out my hand, and from that point on we held each other’s throughout life’s trials. Now you will be stretching out yours for us all, guiding the ones you see straying from their purpose towards the path that you now float upon with such style and grace. In Ecc. 3:11 God said he made EVERYTHING beautiful in it’s time. So one day we will all see the beauty in the things we don’t understand. Until the day we hold each other’s hand again, and I will forever keep your legend alive by telling your story.

Divine love,

There are things we don't want to happen but have to accept...things we don't want to know but have to learn...and people we don't want to live without but have to let go...I can still remember the day you were born, making me an aunt for the first time...I'm holding onto the "good memories" we shared and experienced as you grew up...we must begin to remember not that you have passed away but that you lived, and that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget
