Just remember when you would make sure I was taken care of. When I started High School you would take me shopping for the latest trend. You also knew how much I loved Vanilla Ice and bought me and Lorraine tickets to go see him.. When we played games or just talked about different current events and we would disagree about something because I was sure I was right.. I would go look it up and sure enough you were right. How that bothered but never stopped us from disagreeing. Also remember our team rival (you Raiders me Broncos) and on game day we would set our helmets on the TV and the loser would remove their helmet off the T.V. after the game and take off to their room all mad was always classic. I'll miss you Brother no matter what.. Like I would always say.. Your favorite little Sister.

I will always remember singing and dancing to oldies and acting out the lyrics.
