Dearest Sister,
Thank you so much for giving the love you gave and letting me love you. You taught me so much throughout my life, but in these last few months you taught me more than you'll ever know. I just pray that I live to be half as strong as you. Your perseverance and love of family are etched within me. Your sweet smile, gentle nature, and unique laugh will live with me throughout my days.
