Many may not understand the relationship I had with, MY big sister. We laughed, acted silly, had fun together. My heart is broken, but I know you are amongst the angels. Bella Linda, you changed my life in so many ways. I will always honor the time we shared , and I will try to keep my commitment to the things we talked about doing together. You looked out for me in so many ways. I love you and my heart is torn, but your suffering is over..
Love you.
