I had the best sister  you could ever ask for. She was always there to listen to me and help me.  She was kind caring and loving. Even though she was a lot older than me we were very close, she was like a Mom to me after our Mom passed away.  She will be in my heart forever. I know she is in heaven now and suffering no more.
