Hard to say what I really feel by your loss. We have fought, cried, laughed, through the years, not always in agreement on many things. Shared a room for 18 years , which lasted longer than most marriages these days but through it all we had each other’s hearts and sometimes fought battles no one knew about. I will miss hearing your voice be it loud at times, but I loved you just the same. Your baby sister, Susan (the adopted one according to you). Love ya sis tell everyone in heaven you have arrived. No wait I am sure they all heard you coming!
