Dear Lorraine, my heart breaks that I lost my only sister who, at times, when we were young, was like a mother to me, I know it was difficult, because you wanted to be with your friends, so you took me along with you. Not many teenagers would make that sacrifice. Even as I got older, I was treated like your baby sister.
We will all miss you very much!
Rest In Peace!❤️😢
Love, Your Sister Christine
