The angels gathered near your side so very close to you,they knew the pain and suffering that you were going through I thought about so many things as I held tightly to your hand, I wished that you were strong and happy once again.But your eyes where looking homeward to that place beyond the sky where Jesus held his outstretched arms I knew it was time to say goodbye I struggled with my selfish thought I wanted you to stay so we could walk and talk like we did that day but Jesus knew the answer and I knew you loved him so,so I gave to you life's greatest gifts
The gift of letting go until we meet again my beautiful sister love forever baby sister
